This course provides educators a foundational methodology and conceptual model for introducing technology into the classroom.
This course addresses technology literacy as a staircase of complexity that is embedded in the CCSS as well as being involved in college and career readiness. It begins with an overview of the “technology staircase”, then guides participants through teaching students to master each step, or “stair” of that staircase, from keyboarding to summarizing learning for delivering powerful presentations. It analyzes Bloom’s Technology Taxonomy as well as the SAMR model popularized by Dr. Ruben Puentedura. The course covers digital citizenship and safe practices that should be explicitly taught to students to ensure ethical practices and to prevent cyber crimes. It requires creation of a lesson plan that focuses on effectively integrating technology usage with core content instruction. The course culminates with a practice of all of the steps of the staircase: Summarizing the course using every step of the “Technology Staircase”.
