Today's Cyber World:
How to Manage Its Impact on Learning in Your Classroom
Course #: EDKU 9422
Credit: 3 semester hours of Graduate credit from UMass Global
Teaching in today’s cyber world presents many challenges to educators. The most obvious one is how to master and utilize the constantly changing technology that is being developed for use in the classroom. The less obvious, is the impact that the cyber world is having on how students view the world, think about information, connect and communicate with their peers, impact their need for variety and immediate feedback as well as influence their ability to persist through difficult tasks. In this class, we will look at each of those dynamics and the impact they are having on student learning and behavior in the classroom, as well as what teachers can do to maximize learning in their classroom given those dynamics.
This course consists of 4 modules. Each module has a Powerpoint presentation that you will watch and then complete the accompanying worksheets.
You can choose to have each module sent to you as you complete it, or we can send you all of the modules at the same time.
You will have up to 6 months to complete the class. Credit for the class can’t be granted sooner than one month after registering even if you complete all the modules before that time.
Once you have completed the class, you will receive an email from the University of Massachusetts Global with your student account. It will have a login and password for you to be able to access your grades and request a transcript.
If you have any questions or concerns as you view the PowerPoints and complete the written work, please contact Emily LoVerde Berchier at:
