LTMS 600 Course at Harrisburg Univ

I'm very lucky (have I said that before?) to have the opportunity to teach the LTMS 600 course at Harrisburg University again this summer. Here is the description:

"LTMS 600: 3 semester-hour credits. This intensive course is designed for classroom educators to explore, and practice with, Web 2.0 learning technologies and how the integration of these technologies into teaching and learning impact their teaching and classroom dynamics. Tools to be explored and used, for example, include RSS feeds and aggregators, blogs, wikis, social bookmarking, mashups, podcasts and more. Students will begin to design a classroom activity incorporating one or more Web 2.0 tools for implementation in their classroom. Within a peer learning model, students will design, implement and evaluate a classroom activity that incorporates one or more Web 2.0 tools. The results of this applied project and experiment will be reported out and presented. Lessons created will become a part of a technology-based collection of classroom activities which participants can continue to access after the course."

This year we're going to change the schedule a bit. Last year we met for 5 days in a row, and then on two evenings (synchronously), and then a final Saturday. This year we're going to meet for three days in June, three days in July, and then a day later in the fall. This will allow us time to digest and practice and explore - something we didn't get a chance to do much of last time. I think this will work out much better.

If you are interested in taking this 3 credit Graduate level course, complete the application here:

I hope to see lots of you there this summer. We've got two sections blocked off, just in case.
