|Title||Enhancing Teacher Candidates’ Digital Competencies|
The purpose of this project is to create an integrated and sustainable way to support teacher candidates and faculty members in selecting, evaluating, and implementing digital media technologies in their practice. This will be accomplished by a mentoring system accompanied with pedagogical scaffolding that provides comprehensive online resources.
It aims to redesign the assignments and student engagement to provide opportunities for teacher candidates to “demonstrate fluency in technology systems and the transfer of current knowledge to new technologies and situations” (ISTE Standards, 2008).
The focus will be on digital media and tools that support the following activities in:
1) LLED360, Classroom Discourses and Teaching English Language Learners – language acquisition;
2) EDCP357, Secondary Physics Methods course – student classroom engagement and simulations, and
3) EPSE317, Development and Exceptionality in the Regular Classroom – communication with students with exceptionalities 600 students in the Teacher Education program take at least one of these three courses.
