Seminar for Personalized Learning and Leading Through Technology
This course has a focus on curriculum leadership and management in elementary, middle, and secondary schools and the use of research in curriculum development and implementation. Additionally, in this course students will learn to critically analyze technology and the environment in which it promotes learning; define the theoretical and practical implications in the use of the six facets of understanding for curriculum design, assessment, and teaching with a global perspective; evaluate a continuum of methods for appropriately assessing the degree of student understanding and design curriculum for a target group; integrate both theoretical and empirical research; examine global issues from different perspectives developing an informed understanding of justice, human rights and responsibilities; learn from readings and discussion about the relationship between theoretical and empirical research and technology; and develop a personal viewpoint, wherever possible, in relation to the global themes and issues studied. Students will also explore how gamification of the learning process can leverage both technology and psychology to engage learners as they acquire deep understanding of course content.
