In this course, educators integrate technology into research-based instructional models and strategies to develop higher levels of literacy and facilitate more effective content area learning. Educators develop and assess activities designed to expand the learning community across boundaries through the application of information literacy skills, such as Internet searching and critically evaluating online resources. They also collaborate with other educators to develop an Internet workshop to engage students in using information literacy skills. Educators have the opportunity to reflect on theories, concepts, and strategies presented in the course to determine how they can most effectively use this knowledge to benefit their students and further their professional development.
