Instructors: Gina Loveless and Janene Kosman
The focus of this course was the integration of Web 2.0 technologies into the classroom and professional practice. It was a wonderful foundation for the master's program and it gave me a sense of technology confidence which was useful in subsequent courses. A wide variety of technology tools were introduced and applied to various curriculum levels. My favorite assignment was creating a lesson involving geocaching.
