Educational Technology@PNU

pnu-edtech

This is my final semester before I write a formal report in the field of educational technology that will culminate the course. The two subjects that I’m enrolled in are equally exciting as others that I took last semester. I’ll tell you more about my EdTech journey that started in 2003 in my future posts. For now, let me just tell you what Educational Technology@PNU is all about.

MASTER IN EDUCATIONAL TECHNOLOGY

The Master in Educational Technology (MET) is a curriculum for the practice of educational technology to structure and systematize the application of present day technologies to educational processes and to provide guidance for its use in learning environment.

The entire MET curriculum covers all aspect of educational processes for classroom practices (lesson planning; strategizing; developing instructional materials; developing learning activities; assessment and evaluation) to the development of student’s competencie  through collaboration to various educational resources/content experts beyond the walls of the classroom. This sets the stage for effective learning as educators find the “right fit” between technology and pedagogy.

COURSE GOALS AND OBJECTIVES

The Master in Educational Technology (MET) aims to produce graduates who are able to:

  • Gain clear understanding of pedagogical perpective of curriculum-technology integration;
  • Apply appropriate teaching practices of curriculum-rechnology integration
  • Acquire the tecnological know-how in developing instructional materials  appropriate for a specific instructional methodology/strategy
  • Develop skill in designing and implementing technologically-enable eudcational assessment and evaluation
  • Develop the educational management competencies necessary to design and implement an ICT-enabled school environment
  • Establish personal aspirations for continous competency development that may lead to further educational innovations; and
  • Enrich the curriculum-technology integration through experience and practice.
