7d. Use, Application, and Integration of Instructional Technology
EDU400, a one-credit E-Folio workshop taken in Professional Core I, introduces the teacher candidate to the use of LiveText for the submission of conceptual framework reflections and artifacts, such as lesson plans and embedded digital resources (e.g., photographs, videos, media files, etc.). The E-Folio serves as a multimedia showcase where the teacher candidate submits their work associated with the components of the Division of Education’s Conceptual Framework. EDU400 also provides opportunities for refining fundamental technology application skills.
Technology assignments provided in the chart titled A Sampling of Division of Education Technology Assignments present a sampling of ways the teacher candidate uses, applies, and integrates instructional technology in fields, student teaching, and methods courses.
The teacher candidate’s knowledge and application of skills regarding instructional technology is evidenced through multiple assessments and can be found in the chart titled Key Assessments for Technology Knowledge and Application.
