It provides an overview of the use of technology in education and will give you practical experience in integrating common computer applications in your teaching and in your educational studies, in compliance with The Conceptual Framework for the Professional Education Unit: Research and Reflection for Learning and Leading. Course Objectives At the end of this course, the student will be able to: 1. Identify the Kentucky Academic Expectations and Core Content. 2. Recognize and implement the goals and objectives of the Kentucky Educational Technology System. 3. Demonstrate the ability to use the computer as a tool for producing instructional materials. 4. Manage and present instruction: creating, saving, retrieving, manipulating, and printing files using an integrated applications program (including word- processing, data base, spreadsheet, and slide show applications). 5. Discuss the implementations of technology in the classroom. 6. Demonstrate a positive attitude toward the use of technology in teaching. KERA Initiatives This course will provide students an opportunity to advance their knowledge and mastery of the tools associated with Kentucky education reform, including the Kentucky Learning Goals and Academic Expectations (LGAE), the Kentucky Program of Studies (POS), and the Commonwealth Accountability Testing System (CATS), which includes the Core Content for Assessment. As students carry out projects and complete assignments that involve instructional activities for P-12 students in Kentucky schools, they will address one or more components of the KERA initiatives. Themes of Diversity, Assessment, and Technology All UK professional education programs address and affirm the value of diversity in education, the use of technology to support all aspects of instructional programming, and the importance of attaining high levels of skill in assessing the outcomes of instruction. This course will provide students an opportunity to demonstrate attention to these themes and reflect on the mechanisms that this course has provided to demonstrate improved skills in these areas. Attendance Class participation is essential for discussion; therefore, class attendance is required. Attendance will be taken at each class meeting and will be considered part of the course grade. Each unexcused absence will result in a 5-point deduction from the final course grade.
