Acerca del Curso

Welcome to Emerging Trends and Technologies in K-12! This course will help you evaluate and implement technology in the most useful way within your virtual classroom setting. We will discuss the possibilities and challenges of using technology in fully online environments, although many of the ideas can be applied to blended and traditional environments as well. This course is focused on emerging trends and technologies, specifically for K-12 instructors. Most of the content will be aimed at high school-aged students in the U.S., or ages 13-18 in other countries. Due to the nature of some of the internet-based technologies, young students are required to be 13 or older to participate. That said, many of the examples we discuss can apply to younger ages. This course is focused on virtual education. In other words, blended or fully online teaching and learning experiences. Nevertheless, you can apply the concepts to a traditional class, adult education, and higher education. Lastly, please note that many of the examples will be U.S. based. Upon completing this course, you will be able to: • Define educational technology's role in supporting the virtual environment. • Identify and evaluate existing and emerging technologies for virtual course instruction or curriculum development. • Use collaborative learning tools to design and assess learning activities. • Use game-based strategies to deepen student engagement in virtual courses. • Research, evaluate, and employ open content in virtual education. • Debate the role of MOOCs in virtual K-12 education....

Maybe for me there wasn't so much new ideas but I count myself as advanced in ICT field also ;) But course is build up really well and this resource pdf-s in every week are especially good ...

Unlike the previous course in the Virtual Teacher Specialization, this course was pretty well organized, the instructor was articulate and well-versed in the subject she is teaching.

The information in this course was really interesting, but the instructor brushed too quickly over topics that are assessed in the final quiz. For example, the instruction on the suggested use of leader boards in gaming (week 3) was seriously lacking. Overall, try not to cram so much in to the course, but rather focus more on the meaty aspects of the trends and technologies covered.

this is very K-12 specific, a little more info about higher ed would have been nice. the interviews with the lecturer feel a little bit like trying very hard to change a video format without a need for that, the lecturer could have just answered these questions herself or provided a FAQ section in writing instead. Overall a good course, maybe my expectation was a little different.

Better than the first, but it looks like each element was created in a single day. Some segments were repetitive and dragged on, though the instructor seemed both personable and knowledgeable. When the ONLY visual is the instructor, it gets hard to watch. An interesting model of both what to do and what not to do in creating your own online course.

The class was informative, but the delivery of the material was less appealing. Much of the material could have been presented without so much of Melissa's presence and waving hands. It was very distracting. More visuals of the sites, tools, and ideas would have been better.

Good information, timely and applicable. But presented in a very hard to access way - long sections of prose.

Lessons are good, some resources are outdated and don't work.

The instructor is well verse, but lectures are 10-26 minutes and the reading list is extensive. The interviews are interesting but it is mostly an extension of what was mentioned in the lectures. The content is extensive enough for two levels. During week 3 I had technical difficulties during one quiz and was never contacted. The lack of feedback, as well as no-follow up from technical support, forced me to watch over and over past lectures to end up guessing three answers that no matter what I marked were always incorrect. In the past level feedback will guide you to the specific lesson and that is a key factor for self-motivation to learning. I could have used that time to complete the first two of the next level.

Mostly theoretical/background information about the use of tech in the classroom.

most of it you can't do unless you pay for it. - not sure I can even click 'complete' for the course. so not really a MOOC. - no option for collaboration.

Videos had useful content about 50% of the.

Week 4 resources was by far the best and most useful.

It sounds like one is reading a script and doing so poorly. Additionally, you complete the assignments for peer review, but no peer reviews, and you cannot review a peer.
