ICTI-120: BYOD 2—Integration Ideas and Projects

About this course

The heart of your Bring Your Own Device policy is what happens in the classroom. Once your foundation is established, build your capacity for technology integration to support student success. In this course, you will consider how to leverage the unique benefits of the technology that is already in the hands of your students to support their learning.

 

What will I learn in this course?

Week 1: Plan for BYOD

During the first week, you will learn how to plan ahead to balance curriculum demands, student needs, and available technology. Having a game plan will help reduce stress and ensure success.

Week 2: Investigate Resources

In week two, you will investigate available resources and match tools. Learn how to leverage the benefits of various tools to meet the learning objectives rather than jumping from one new gadget to the next.

Week 3: Develop Curriculum

During week three, you will explore resources specifically designed for a particular content area. Integrating these tools can provide real-world experiences for students and function as performance assessments to determine mastery of required standards.

Week 4: Implement BYOD with Students

To ensure the flexibility needed with multiple devices, you will go through steps to ensure your lessons are cross-platform compatible. For the culminating activity in this course, you will create a trans-disciplinary unit infused with technology to support student success in your BYOD classroom.
