EDTECH 501

Introduction to Educational Technology
Course Syllabus

Anthony Saba does a tremendous job of preparing students for the work that is ahead of us.  We will need to write numerous papers for our M.E.T. classes, and those papers will need to be in the correct format.  EDTECH 501 gives us the opportunity to practice writing and formatting papers according to the APA guidelines.  The APA guidelines are not easy for me to grasp, but Mr. Saba is very helpful.

There are several papers and shows prepared for this class.  Most of them involved a blog post, and all of those posts are linked below.  The artifacts are primarily hosted on Google Drive.  You can reach them by the links below or directly from within the blog posts themselves.

Google+ Posts Link Google+ was a big part of the work in this class.  In addition to posting our own artifacts and receiving feedback from classmates, we also posted feedback on our peers’ artifacts.  This made for a well-rounded look at educational technology since others chose topics we wouldn’t necessarily have chosen.
