50 Excellent Open Courses on Teaching With Technology – Online Colleges and Universities
September 23, 2010 § Leave a comment
Lately, I’ve been talking a lot, both online and in the real world, about technology in education. I’ve given five presentations since the start of the school year on technology in some form, and will be giving another tonight. I’ve started a wiki about technology, constructed Trailmemes for various technologies, conducted research on new technology for possible purchase in our department, read (or attempted to read, and then gave up after much eye rolling) quite a few books about technology and its impact on the brain and behavior, upgraded my personal technology resources by finally buying a smartphone and getting a data package… all in the last month.
What, you ask, could I possibly have for you now?? How about some free, online, self-directed courses on teaching with technology? A disclaimer: I have not looked at any of these courses in depth yet, so I cannot vouch for them in any way. However, blogger Douglas Walker at Mr. Walker’s Technology Blog was good enough to blog about them first, which I take to mean that they’re something worth checking out.
So go, do!
