Students in ED 510 worked all semester on their ePortfolio project*. The purpose of the project is to highlight their "mad tech skills" and provide links to resources.

Enjoy their great work! 


*Projects featured on this site did not necessarily earn a perfect score, but are good examples of student work.

ED Tech Web Pages

Students in the Educational Technology program are required to submit a Web page overview for each course taken within the minor. This is a final project summarizing the course purpose, outcomes, etc.

You'll get a great understanding of the courses by viewing these student-created Web pages - and you'll be amazed by the outstanding work being designed, created and published.

Engage, explore, explain, elaborate & evaluate

 Students in ED 410/411 and ED 540 have been hard at work creating 5e lesson plans. These plans break the teaching/learning process into 5 categories - engagement, exploration, explanation, elaboration and evaluation. The following lesson plans are excellent examples* of the 5e process. Enjoy!

C Carpenter - 11th grade World War II Lesson

A Wilbanks - 8th Grade English Language Arts Lesson 

T Chambers - The Color Wheel 

P Graham -  What are College Majors?

C Dyer - Open Educational Resources 


*Featured lesson plans are not necessarily perfect, but are very good student examples.

How Awesome is Teaching!

The really cool thing about educational technology courses, to me, is the amount of content that can be taught/learned in each lesson. For example, students in ED 510 just completed a module covering digital presentations. In this module, not only did they learn to create a presentation, they learned so much more - 

For example, in the Digital Storytelling Presentation featured below, the student learned:

  1. Digital design best practices (how to effectively design a presentation)
  2. Presentation best practices (how to effectively deliver the presentation - voice, tone, engaging the audience)
  3. How to use Prezi
  4. How to use lecture capture software
  5. How to upload a presentation to server space
  6. How to generate a public URL for publishing the video
  7. Creativity - in the design process
  8. Information processing skills - this particular student learned about teaching/learning using “digital storytelling”
    1. How to gather information
    2. Organize the information
    3. Present findings

 With the emergence of technology into the K-12 classrooms, an understanding and application of technology management best practices is a must. 

Students in ED 410/411 have been gathering information about K-12 classroom technology management. They shared their information in digital presentations. Enjoy viewing and learning from their outstanding work!
