EDPT 200: Integrating Educational Technology in the Classroom
"We do not learn from experience... we learn from reflecting on experience." (John Dewey)
The class is designed to:
help practicing and future teachers integrate technology in their daily teaching practices.
it is a practical, hands-on course that is grounded in constructivist learning theory.
the students will learn by engaging in authentic tasks in a project-based learning environment.
Along with the ISTE student (2016) and teacher (2017) standards the focus from 2020 onwards will be on the NEW Quebec's Digital Action Plan for Education and Higher Education
Please log into the class MyCourses page for detailed info!

Required Course Readings
The fall '22 course as of now will be taught on campus. (YES !!!) We are using the Maloy textbook (4th edition). The chapter readings will either be posted on myCourses and accessed through Perusall. This semester I am using Perusall gradebook OUTSIDE of myCourses ~ the algorithm caused surdents too much stress in edpt204 with the weekly fluctuations & updates. I will explain in the first class.
The Maloy textbook comes with an online wiki which we will use throughout the semester: https://sites.google.com/view/transformlearningwithtech
The Quebec Digital Action Plan: Guide & Overview. will also used at selected times throughout the semester.
