Before students can integrate and create multimedia content for the classroom they must understand how information is organized and shared on the Internet. Online information and multimedia content is organized using tagging and RSS feeds. Students will learn how to find and share content through tagging and RSS feeds. Curriculum focus will be science and math based multimedia content for classroom use. Skills • Advance search techniques will aid in the search and evaluation of new media material. • Creative Commons and remixing of photos and video will be discussed. • Resources will be archived for future use using social bookmarking.
  4. 4. • The constant flow of information and multimedia (photos, videos and podcasts) will be harnessed using RSS readers. Session 2 Visual Literacy The importance of images in the classroom to enhance written word will be discussed. Imagery will be created and remixed using Photoshop, SMARTBoard Notebook, screen capture software and online photo editors. Images will be used to teach challenging concepts. Photos will be shared and integrated into classroom curriculum using photo sharing sites. Techniques for data collection will be taught (usb probes and online surveys). Data visualizations will be created to analyze and develop questions from the data. Student assessment through imagery with Vociethread and Glogster. Skills • Basic Photoshop menus, layers, image size and resolution. • SMARTBoard Notebook image capture and editing to develop interactive whiteboard lessons. • Photo tagging and sharing through sites like Flickr and Picasa. • Data collection and data visualization using Google Forms. • Vernier USB Science probes collect scientific lab data. • Voicethread and Glogster creation. Session 3 Animation and Games Students will create interactive animations using Scratch, Macromedia Flash and Google Earth. Games will be created using SMARTBoard Notebook. Animation will be used to enhance content and recreate a real world scenario in a virtual context. Skills • Macromedia Flash Basics, interactions and enhancements. • Scratch basic cards. • Google Earth place markers and tours. • SMARTBoard Lesson Activity Tool Kit Session 4 Podcasting as a learning and assessment tool. Students will create a series of screencasts to use as a class podcast. The importance of student publishing will be discussed.

  7. 7. Quality of oral/written work (e.g. organization, presentation, knowledge of subject matter, neatness/legibility, scholarly format) Quality of oral/written English (e.g. spelling, punctuation, grammar, usage, etc.) Assignments are to be completed following scholarly format and personal/professional integrity. All information from research MUST BE cited and referenced appropriately using APA 6th Edition format. Breaches of academic integrity (plagiarism) in any form will be penalized with an F in the course and may result in removal from the program. Kindly mute all cellphones/electronic devices and refrain from all forms of texting during class meetings to maintain a scholarly, distraction-free environment. An assumption of this class includes the realization by all students that this is a graduate level course. As such the time commitment and scholarliness required for a satisfactory grade are implicit responsibilities of the student. If accommodations are required, please make certain that you speak confidentially with your professor at the beginning of the course. Also, please contact the Office of Special Services at Rosary Hall at 845-848-4035. All assignments are due by 11:59:59 EST on the dates posted unless otherwise advised. Late assignments will not be graded nor will they receive credit. A minimum grade of B is required in all courses in the EdMedia/Technology program. Failure to earn a B will necessitate a repeat of the course in order for the student to successfully complete the program; however, only one course in the program may be repeated. Undocumented lateness to class of up to ½ hour will result in ½ absence; undocumented lateness beyond ½ hour will be marked as absence. More than one absence in the class will result in a failing grade for the course. Time missed due to class absence will need to be made up according to program policy/instructor requirements AND will result in grade reduction.
