*EDCI 325 Coaching and Leading Technology Innovation in Schools *

This online course is for educators interested in coaching and leading
technology-rich innovation in today's schools. This includes planning for
school and district level, planning and implementing technology rich
innovation strategies, and development and dissemination of professional
development in local, regional, and global venues. Through the assignments,
basic troubleshooting of hardware, software and cloud based systems is
addressed, as well as web-based authoring and programming tools.
Students explore the roles that teacher leaders and coaches inhabit, and
how these roles can energize other classroom teachers and build a community
of active participants in innovative technology-rich programs. Students
will also study the means to foster leadership around the planning and
development of goals for their school technology needs. (SPRING 2018)

*EDFS 320* *Technology, Schooling, and Society*
Explore the influences of technology on schooling and society. Using
sociological, historical, and philosophical frameworks, course participants
will consider ways that the proliferation and use of
information technologies present challenges and opportunities for
teachers, learners, and community members. With a particular focus on
changing roles due to information access, the course examines issues of
equity, cultural diversity, student empowerment, community relationships,
and the transformation of traditional schooling practices. (SPRING 2018 or
SUMMER 2019)
