In this professional development course for teachers, you'll learn the secrets of technology integration in the classroom, gaining the skills educators need to use tools such as wikis, podcasts, and blogs effectively. You'll discover simple ways to integrate technology to enhance your subject material and meet your Common Core standards and other course goals. We'll explore quick-and-easy, standards-based solutions for more interactive lesson plans, exciting WebQuests, and challenging assignments. We'll also unleash the power of Web resources, Word, Excel, and PowerPoint.
You'll learn how to design your presentation station based on auditory, visual, and kinesthetic learning styles, identify kid-friendly Internet search tools, teach keyboarding and word processing, use tablets and assistive technology, and develop standards-based, integrated lesson plans in reading, writing, science, math, social studies, music, and art. We'll delve into ways to reach special needs, GATE, and English language learners. Finally, we'll look at computer ethics and integrating technology in the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) classroom and the flipped classroom.
Whether you're new to the integration process or already use emerging technologies in your classroom, this course is a must for all of today's teachers and future teachers who often have to produce more and more in less and less time. By the end of our time together, you'll have a treasure of ideas for integrating all types of technology into your lesson plans across the curriculum!

Course Revised April 2016
A new session of each course opens each month, allowing you to enroll whenever your busy schedule permits!
How does it work? Once a session starts, two lessons will be released each week, for the six-week duration of your course. You will have access to all previously released lessons until the course ends.
Keep in mind that the interactive discussion area for each lesson automatically closes 2 weeks after each lesson is released, so you’re encouraged to complete each lesson within two weeks of its release.
The Final Exam will be released on the same day as the last lesson. Once the Final Exam has been released, you will have 2 weeks plus 10 days to complete the Final and finish any remaining lessons in your course. No further extensions can be provided beyond these 10 days.

Great class!! Lots of useful information that will translate to real world class activities and instruction. Clear, concise and thorough instruction. I'm very pleased.
Great Class! Thanks for sharing so much useful information. I now feel more capable of addressing the needs of my school. Thank you!
I cannot believe how much I have gained confidence in using a variety of technology in the classroom (some I'd never even heard of before!). I am amazed by the wealth of ideas and Internet resources that I now have. Plus, I have access to websites that will keep me informed about developments in the future. I am inspired to do more creative activities and find it easier to brainstorm new ideas. I have already eagerly shared this new information with my colleagues.
I feel like I have come out of the dark ages since starting your class. I have brought technology into my home and personal life. I went wireless, bought a laptop, and I'm teaching my better half how to surf the net. I'm still trying to figure out some of the basic things out, but I know I can do it. I want to thank you for making me feel more confident in using the computer in the classroom and in my daily life. You presented the parts of the machine to me and then gave me ways to incorporate this tool and what it has to offer into my classroom. I have a wonderful list of favorites my students or I can go to. It has been fun and lets me know I can still do this.
I had a great time taking this course. It started out mostly as a way to keep my certification up to date and secondly as a means of keeping my teaching fresh. As I progressed through the course, it became mostly a way to freshen my teaching and secondly a way to keep certification up to date. This class offered some very valuable and helpful information and resources for encouraging me to make my classroom even more tech friendly than it already is. Thanks for the inspiration!
I hope that more students choose to take this course. It has much valuable information and many suggestions. Thank you.
Robin was an excellent instructor! I really felt like she was right there in front of me just having a conversation. I learned a lot and will definitely go the online route more often!
Thank you for all the wonderful information you shared with us. This was my first online class and I was nervous to get started. But, you made things clear and easy to follow. I will use many of the ideas in my classroom! Thanks again!
This class was fantastic!! I especially liked all the links to websites that will help me implement using technology in the classroom.
WOW!! I have learned so much from this course! I never knew integrating technology into the classroom could be so much fun! I look forward to having my own classroom next year and using as many of these great sites as possible. My 3 kids have enjoyed this as well because they have been my guinea pigs. My son has found fun sites where he can get extra practice on math facts and my daughters have visited wonderful sites to help improve their reading! I was feeling intimidated in the beginning because of my lack of computer knowledge. I now feel excited and ready to get started! I really enjoyed this course. Thank you!
This course was fun as well as informative and educational. I learned a lot about different aspects of using technology in the classroom. The instructor did a great job putting together the lessons and providing information and examples of how to use technology in the classroom. I would recommend this class to others.
This is a great course and a well-informed teacher. I would recommend this course to anyone who has frequent need of a computer either at work or home. The writing was both informative and easy to read and the instructions were clear. I will enjoy using this information in a number of areas. Thank you.
The class was great. It was easy to tell that the instructor knew a lot about the material she was teaching. She also had great technology resources to look at.
Would highly recommend this class. Great resources and ideas to make technology improve the learning curve for students.
