Educators today are teaching a generation of "digital natives" and the use of technology in the classroom is imperative. In a 2010, American College of Education surveyed students and alumni and the number-one request was more advanced use of technology in the assignments and class projects. Our students wanted more education around leveraging technology in the classroom no matter their subject, no matter their specialty. And so was born the Digital Learning Connections (DLC) initiative: a college-wide plan to infuse technology across our courses and curriculum.
Through Digital Learning Connections, assignments in all courses will utilize both common and emerging technologies so our graduate students are exposed to new tools and have a chance to hone their skills for use in their classrooms and in their lives.
Below are various resources and tips on commonly used technology tools. Check back often for additions and postings.
