Ed T&L 925.28 Social Studies Seminar
TEACHING ABOUT THE WORLD WITH TECHNOLOGY
DO YOU want to learn how to use e-learning to teach about the world? Perhaps to help students understand current events, diverse cultures, or global environmental, political, economic, environmental change and interconnectedness?
In SP11′s 925.28 we will:
- Explore how teachers in several countries are using Web 2.0 tools and other e-learning strategies to teach about a variety of K-12 world-related topics and subjects.
- Experiment with diverse ways to communicate online, access primary sources, create cross-cultural learning experiences, find ways to collaborate with teachers, students, and organizations in other countries.
This is not a course in technology. It is a course in using e-learning technologies to improve student understanding of their world and intercultural skills in working across cultures. You will learn how teachers are using tools like podcasts, blogs or social networking sites but you will not have lessons on how to make your own.
This course will fill on a first-come, first-serve basis. After 20 people have registered, a waitlist will begin. I am keeping the course small as this is the first time I have taught it.
Note this course is not being offered through Continuing Education so regular OSU tuition and fees apply. Next time I will run it through Continuing Ed to get the price down for out of state teachers.
