    • Welcome to Introduction to Educational Technology, EDU505. I'm your instructor for this course but more importantly I'm also a teacher who uses technology in my personal life, my accounting job, and my education life. Web 2.0 is amazing technology. It’s so cool. But it has to be more than cool. Web 2.0 has to serve the educational objectives, and that’s what I try to teach. You're going to love what you can create for your students and parents using (mostly) free technology. I'm excited about working with you and sharing my enthusiasm for this 21st Century Learning. My personal goal for this course is to help you feel confident and inspired so that you will not only use the technology but will be a technology leader in your course. My teaching philosophy is that we are all learners together—and that’s not just a cliché for me. I expect to learn from you (I’m excited about that) and expect you to learn from each other. Of course, I still have some instructor responsibilities but I see my role more as a coach and facilitator. Terry (right) with her cousin at the 2013 Presidential Inaugural Ball, Washington DC. I recently retired after 34 years in public education. In my “Final Four” years, I was the HS librarian, the Technology Coach, and then the Graduation Project Online Instructor, all for Peters Township SD. I assisted our district in implementing an online program for our students. I’ve designed professional development workshops for many technology areas, online and F2F. In my career, I’ve also taught HS English and journalism, owned and managed a restaurant, presented at educational conferences, and taught online professional development for different companies. I have taught EDU505 (Intro to Educational Technology) for several semesters; I wrote and now teach EDU518, Effective Online Course Design and Teaching Strategies, and will teach EDU508 Issues in Educational Technology. I also currently serve as the office manager/bookkeeper for my husband’s company. When I'm not working, I like to read and travel. If I had more time, I would like to cook. As it is, I settle for reading cookbooks and eating in restaurants. This year I have traveled to Germany, Amsterdam, London and Ireland. Domestically, I’ve been to Washington quite often this year as well as California, New Orleans, Florida and Texas. I also travel extensively with my husband for business. I recently finished reading The Fault in Our Stars by John Green, and books by Michael Connelly, Sue Grafton, Isabel Allende, and so many more. If you also like to read, join Goodreads and we can “friend” each other there. I hope you are as excited about this course as I am. Terry
