Emerging technologies are quickly gaining momentum in the field of virtual K-12 instruction. In this course we will explore how the latest trends in technology affect student learning and engagement. What innovative learning spaces and tools are available to instructors? How can instructors best utilize free and open resources to more deeply engage students in their learning? What impact can the use of emerging technologies have on student retention and performance? As a class we will discuss the possibilities and challenges of using technology in both online and blended environments. Learners will compare and contrast tools for use in K-12 instruction, as well as examine best practices for implementing and managing these tools. Learners will also consider the value of emerging technologies as they relate to social learning, game-based learning, and open content.
