ECI 511: Technology Integration Theory and Practice
This course introduced me to a wide variety of Web 2.0 tools to use for technology integration. We were asked to apply the technology to various subject matter, which was very helpful in understanding how different tools may complement some subjects more than others, allowing the focus to be where it should be - on the learning.
I am including two projects completed for the course, followed by the final paper, titled "Integrating Technology into the Fifth Grade Social Studies Curriculum." The first project was to create a ToonDoo on a health topic. For the second, I created a virtual field trip to our National Seashore Parks using Google Maps. If you click on the "view larger map" button, you will be taken to the actual google map project, and may learn about our National Seashore Parks.
