EDUC 61661 Technology & Instruction

This course is designed to assist teacher leaders in further defining and adding to differentiation skills and utilizing technology in meaningful ways for the teacher and the students in the classroom. A critical element will be analyzing and reflecting on the current use of differentiation and technology and expanding how each can increase student success, motivation, and engagement. The work completed in this course will further contribute to effective instruction practices that candidates incorporate into Component 2. Candidates will use what they have learned as part of the final phase of the National Boards process, Phase III, Analysis of and Reflection on Accomplished Teaching, providing for deeper examination of the candidate's current practice and how that practice may change through the certification process. There are no prerequisites for this course; however, the Teacher Leader Program is a cohort model. It is expected that the courses will be taken in the required sequence.
