SPED 6360: Special Topics: Incorporating Technology into Inclusive Learning Environments for ALL Learners CRN 22317

This course prepares teachers and related service providers to integrate digital media and technology into inclusive learning environments. The incorporation of demonstrations, hands-on experiences, and applications projects will provide teachers and other related service providers with the practical experiences involving the multiple roles various technologies play in supporting teaching and learning for students with and without disabilities in inclusive learning environments. Students will develop skills in podcasting, digital story/text development, digital video development and production, virtual environments, use of various Web 2.0 tools (ie., social media, electronic portfolios, etc.), and various software packages used to develop and maintain active and effective inclusive learning environments. Teachers and related service providers will leave this course with resources and skills that can be applied immediately into the teaching/learning environment.
