CUIN 570 : Designing the Technology-Rich Curriculum

This course is most appropriate for K-12 personnel interested in integrating technology into their existing curricula or designing new curricula that involve appropriate technology uses. While it is not a curriculum design class, this course is built on the notion that course participants have a solid working knowledge of planning curriculum at a level applicable to their current context. Prospective and practicing educators will most likely be focused on integrating technology into their instruction and audience. Simultaneously, administrators, curriculum support specialists, and others may consider curriculum more broadly at a school or district level. Regardless of the context, the issues associated with integrating technology into curriculum, teaching, and training are similar.
