There’s still time to register for summer and fall courses.
This summer we are offering the course Technology in Teaching ECE 262 from July 7 to August 7 on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursdays 6:30 to 8:15 PM. This course is for anyone who wants to learn how to use technology to teach or present information to children or adults in active and engaging ways. Topics covered include: Making newsletters and brochures, using SmartBoard Notebook, making kiosk presentations, creating flip books, e-games, videos, and designing virtual field trips. Applications and hardware covered include: PowerPoint, Prezie, hyperlinks, Adobe Photoshop, iMovie, Publisher, e-book software, Livebinders, Tablets, WordPress, Waccoms, iPads, and much more.
Also offered this summer is Children with Special Needs ECE 210. This is an online course that runs from June 2 to Aug 8. In this course you will learn how to recognize, assess, and refer children who have developmental delays and physical, cognitive and emotional diagnoses. Applicable laws and ways of working with families is emphasized.
For the Fall we have a number of courses available.
A new online course is ECE 256 Special Topics in Education: STEAM for Young Children. STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math. his course explores how to create and implement STEAM activities for young children using a hands-on, inquiry-based curriculum. The underlying philosophy of this course is that people learn better when engaged in making and designing their own meaningful projects; therefore, we will become designers of STEAM curriculum, we will test our ideas by observing children as they pursue STEAM activities, and we will use online tools such as blogging to document the learning experience.
