This course will build upon and enhance the knowledge gained in LIS 460 and further develop the ability of students to integrate technology into the curriculum, work with teachers in the integration of the use of technology in the classroom, and explore trends in teaching, learning, and instructional technology. The standards developed by the International Society for Technology in Education for students and teachers will be studied and strategies developed for their implementation. Students will develop technology-rich units that meet defined goals, objectives, and benchmarks as required by the Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks and the Common Core. The Internet, educational software, including educational uses of word processing, databases, and spreadsheets; curricula resources available via Web 2.0; WebQuests, assessment, and multimedia programs will be examined to determine how these tools can be harnessed to advance teaching and learning and how they can be used to create motivating and meaningful learning environments for all children. Through the use of instructional technology, students will learn strategies to enable elementary and secondary students to take greater responsibility for their own learning. Prerequisite: LIS 460
