The classes taken to meet this standard was:

EDTC 5720 Computer Networks

I had to design a theoretical technology room based on 25-30 students using the space. Although it was a conceptual design, I had to decide the type of learning environment I was designing and who would benefit from this design. Plan the layout of the room. Design the network layout. Research and determine the best devices and equipment needed to facilitate such a technology-infused environment. The software best suited to facilitate the needs of the students to complete their assignments. The type of Internet connection required to support what would be needed for downloading and uploading assignments, resources, and study materials. The backup services, filing sharing, network security, support, and cost analysis.

EDTC 6461 Design of Technology Supported Learning Environments Internship

What I gained from my experience in EDTC 6461 Design of Technology Supported Learning Environments Internship was the ability to create instructional materials that reflect current theory and research on learning, demonstrate a creative infusion of technology into the content areas, and approach assessment as a dynamic, process-oriented component of the learning experience. By focusing on the concepts and competencies that teachers ought to have to meaningfully integrate technology into instruction in their specific content area.

EDTC 6300: Technology Project Management

The goal of the capstone assessment is to create a comprehensive technology plan for a learning or training environment. The following separate pieces will make up then entire plan.

Part One -- The Technology Management Plan: create a plan for a learning environment or training environment.

Part Two -- The Evaluation Plan: the detailed monitoring and evaluation section of the technology plan

Part Three -- The Action Plan: the goals, the objectives, strategies, and actions steps that will produce the successful implementation to reach a goal

TF - VII Procedures, Policies, Planning, and Budgeting for Technology Environments

Educational technology facilitators promote the development and implementation of technology infrastructure, procedures, policies, plans, and budgets for PK-12 schools. Educational technology facilitators:

    1. use plans to configure software/computer/technology systems and related peripherals in laboratory, classroom cluster, and other appropriate instructional arrangements.
    2. use local mass storage devices and media to store and retrieve information and resources.
    3. discuss issues related to selecting, installing, and maintaining wide area networks (WAN) for school districts.
    4. model integration of software used in classroom and administrative settings including productivity tools, information access/telecommunications tools, multimedia/hypermedia tools, school management tools, evaluation/portfolio tools, and computer-based instruction.
    5. utilize methods of installation, maintenance, inventory, and management of software libraries.
    6. use and apply strategies for troubleshooting and maintaining various hardware/software configurations found in school settings.
    7. use network software packages to operate a computer network system.
    8. work with technology support personnel to maximize the use of technology resources by administrators, teachers, and students to improve student learning.
B. Follow procedures and guidelines used in planning and purchasing technology resources.Candidates:
    1. identify instructional software to support and enhance the school curriculum and develop recommendations for purchase.
    2. discuss and apply guidelines for budget planning and management procedures related to educational computing and technology facilities and resources.
    3. discuss and apply procedures related to troubleshooting and preventative maintenance of technology infrastructure.
    4. apply current information involving facilities planning issues and computer-related technologies.
    5. suggest policies and procedures concerning staging, scheduling, and security for managing computers/technology in a variety of school/laboratory/classroom settings.
    6. use distance and online learning facilities. 
    7. describe and identify recommended specifications for purchasing technology systems in school settings.
C. Participate in professional development opportunities related to the management of school facilities, technology resources, and purchases. Candidates:
    1. support technology professional development at the building/school level utilizing adult learning theory.
