Selected readings: A selection of current articles specific to multi-media development and instructional application are used. The "Milken Seven Dimensional Analysis Model for Gauging Progress in Technology Application in Schools", the National Education Technology Standards,  the Georgia Department of Education QCC for Technology, and "Five models for teaching health education"  provide the content and skill application framework for this course.

UNIT THEME:     CREATING EFFECTIVE CONTEXTS FOR LEARNING

PROGRAM THEME:EDUCATOR AS CRITICAL AND DIVERGENT THINKER

Each week, students participate in one hour of classroom discussion ,one hour of skill training, and one hour of skill application. Skill training is conducted in room 256, Instructional Technology Center, College of Education. Skill application for health and physical education is completed either in the Instructional Technology Center, GSU computer center, or on the student's personal home computer. A technology portfolio including technology applications and materials developed during the course will be created for use  during the field-based block and student teaching. Small group web sites will be developed during the course and will include the posting of all student created instructional technology applications.

COURSE GOALS: By the completion of the course, the student will:

    1. Understand multi-media technology and its instructional applications for health and physical
       education;
    2. Appreciate the importance of incorporating assistive technology for special needs students;
    3. Know of health education instructional technology resources;
    4. Appreciate the relationship between instructional technology and health education models for
        learning; and
    5. Be aware of the six technology strands described in the Georgia QCC for Technology.

COURSE OBJECTIVES:Knowledge-based
    By the completion of the course, the student will:

               development of instructional materials;
            3. Select appropriate technology application for each of the five instructional models of
                health education;
            4. Incorporate effective design elements into the production of computer generated
                instructional support material; and
            5. Plan for the inclusion of resourcs, for special needs students, available from the Georgia
               Assistive Technology Project.

COURSE OBJECTIVES: Skill-based

                transparency/overlay using Power Point;
            9. Integrate selected portions of software material from Body Connections, Alcohol 101,
                Refusal Skills, Pyramid Challenge, ADAM, or Dine Healthy 3 into an age/stage
                appropriate technology instructional application;

            13.Complete a graph application using EXCEL; and
            14.Communicate with classmates and instructor through course discussion board and e-mail.

ASSESSMENT:
Assignment specific grades are calculated as the percent of total number of points earned for any given assignment divided by the total possible number of points for each assignment. All assignments have equal weight and will be averaged for the final course grade.
            A= 90-99%
            B=80-89%
            C=70-79%
            D=60-69%
            F=59 & below

Any late work will receive a 2 point deduction from the initial grade earned. Any student absent from more than four classes or skill training labs will have the final grade dropped by one letter grade.

A pre-post assessment of student perception about personal technology competence will be conducted using three of the seven dimensions of the analysis model developed by Milken. Selected national standards will also be assessed through use of a likert self-report scale. Results of the pre/post assessment will not be calculated into the course grade. All data will be analyzed at the group level of analysis to assist in ongoing revision of the course.

Creating a Technology Portfolio

The portfolio will be an extended activity throughout the term. During the field-based block and student teaching, each student is encouraged to use materials developed during the technology course. It is suggested that the portfolio (notebook) be divided for articles, course handouts, and copies of completed assignments. The format for the portfolio is open ended promoting individual "meaning making" through reflection.

Sections to be included:
    1. Introduction including personal belief about how children/youth learn best; how you believe
       incorporating technolgy into health and physical education will enhance your teaching and
       promote learning for your students;
    2. Personal instructional technology goals and how you reached them during the term;
    3. Print-out of the web page created in small group; and
    4. Examples of best work during the course (web quest, health/pe lessons, student handout,
        Power Point presentation).

Attendance Policy

The attendance policy for this course is consistent with the University guidelines as stated in the University General Catalog, in that excessive absences are prohibited and emergencies must be discussed with and determined by the instructor.  Pg. 49-50

policy on incomplete grades

The incomplete (I) grade indicates that a student had completed satisfactorily a substantial portion of the coursework; but for NONACADEMIC reasons beyond the students control, was unable to meet the full course requirements.   The awarding of “I” is done at the discretion of the professor and is not the prerogative of the student. An “I” not satisfactorily removed within the prescribed time limit of the END OF THE NEXT SEMESTER if the student is enrolled in the university, or not later than the END OF THE NEXT TWO CONSECUTIVE SEMESTERS, whether or not the student is enrolled in the university at that time, will be changed automatically to the grade of “F”.  (Please see GSU catalog, pg. 50-51 for further information).

POLICY ON ACADEMIC HONESTY

The university assumes as a basic and minimum standard of conduct in academic matters that students are honest and they submit for credit only the products of their own efforts.  All dishonest work will be rejected as a basis for academic credit.  This includes work done in unauthorized collaboration with another person, falsification (for instance, misrepresented material, fabricated information, false or misleading citation of sources, falsification of the results of experiments or computer data) and multiple submissions (work submitted for credited more than once without the explicit consent of the instructor to whom work is being submitted for additional credit). 

Cheating and plagiarism Any assignment/paper/report/test found to have been completed with unauthorized help will, at the least, be given a grade of 0.  Sanctions up to and including expulsion are possible in cases of cheating or plagiarism, subject to the appeal procedures outlined in the Statement on Student’s Rights and Responsibilities.   

Please see the 2002-2003 General Catalog Policy on Academic Honesty, pg. 66-69 for further information and definitions. 

All written work must exhibit a college-level competency in spelling, grammar, punctuation, and style.  Written work with significant mechanical flaws will not be accepted. 

Writing Center (Excerpt form GSU Catalog, 2002-2003, pg 102) 

The Writing Center in the Department of English off free assistance to students with writing assignments required in any courses in the university.   Students may walk in the consult with faculty or graduate-student tutors about the basic writing problems, ways of developing a assigned topic, or techniques for revising and editing.
