EDUC 381 - Interactive Technology for Young Children

(3cr) EDUC 381 is a course designed to familiarize teacher candidates with the use of technology in early education settings as both a tool to collecting and managing data about student achievement as well as its use as an instructional tool providing students with high quality instruction as they develop skills needed for the 21st century. Students will examine best practices and evaluate the implementation of various hardware and software tools as they design instruction that meets the needs of both typically developing students and those with special needs. This course is part of the Shepherd University teacher education program which is founded on the philosophy and theme of "Teacher as Reflective Problem Solver." The course is also based on the principles and standards of the National Association for the Education of Young Children, the West Virginia Professional Teaching Standards, the Council for Exceptional Children Initial Preparation Standards and the National Education Technology Standards for Teachers. Students must have access to children, preferably in a classroom setting. Prerequisites: Admission to the teacher education program.
