The final project will be available to a wide audience. This project will demonstrate your understanding of how research-based instructional methods can be used to design technology-enhanced instruction” (Wicks, 2015). The lesson we wrote is a “professional development session for educators interested in improving technology integration with classroom management strategies to promote student agency” (Ingersoll, Scott, Todd, & Tremonte, 2015). The objective of the course follows the ABCD format:

Educators (audience) will become more comfortable with student use of educational technology through awareness of classroom management strategies (behavior) to promote and model digital etiquette and responsibility (degree) by participating in a professional development session and completing a post­-assessment survey (condition).

The following snapshot of the course was provided to potential students: “Ideal digital learning environments begin with the acknowledgement that learning is not a segmented reality, but a practice that should and does happen at all moments of the day. Technology and personal devices are moving targets, putting students in charge, as they need to adapt and learn to address obstacles. An ideal learning environment involves students in this process and gives them ownership. It includes teachers who are willing to work alongside students to navigate the confusions and shifts of emerging technology. This session is perfect for educators who may or may not be comfortable with independent student use of technology in their classroom. Educators will become more comfortable with student use of educational technology through awareness of classroom management strategies to promote and model digital etiquette and responsibility” (Ingersoll, Scott, Todd, & Tremonte, 2015).
