For the upcoming spring semester, UVM is offering two online courses for educators, school leaders, and coaches to support leading and effectively designing instruction using technology that meets Vermont standards and recently adopted ISTE standards for student learning.  These courses can be applied toward the Educational Technology Specialist endorsement.  See course descriptions below.  We encourage you to share this with any of your colleagues who may be interested.  Learn more and sign up by visiting: UVM Educational Technology Online Courses


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)
