Advanced Using Integrated Software Across the Curriculum  

EDTC 813

Course Description: Candidates learn about integrated software packages (i.e., software which integrates word processing, data base management, paint, draw, spreadsheet and telecommunications capabilities into one package). The package is studied as the starting point of a resource- based curriculum. New types of learning and assignments across the curriculum are explored.

This assignment allowed me to use the principles of Universal Design for Learning to design an exhibit at Liberty Science Center. The proposed exhibit incorporated augmented reality and would enhance an existing exhibit.   

For this group project Christopher Farrell, Krista Welz and I utilized Marina Bers technology learning principles to the Jersey City Public School technology plan. This gave the group a close examination of applying theory in a practical context. 

The second project was a group project created by Christopher Farrell, Krista Welz, and me. We looked at Achieve NJ in conjunction with the Danielson framework for teaching and how it would be applied to a newly created district blended learning program. We were able to see the impact of technology on teacher practice and how to use the evaluation tool. 

In this assignment, I was challenged to use images to explain how Senge's Fifth Discipline systems thinking can be compared to concepts of blended by Horn & Staker's.
