EDTEC 700 Section 1: Advanced
Making movies isn't just a fun add on for teachers. It actually can be a tool for engaging a wide spectrum of learners in content learning, enhancing higher level thinking like synthesis, reflection, and application. Learn to create and use media rich presentations as well as develop student activities for using digital video to engage students in content learning in ways other text rich media can't. Learn how to use still images, digital video, sound effects, audio voice dubs, special effects, multi-layered video tracks, and many more easy to use edits to your raw photos and digital artifacts. Schedule # 11141.

strategies to ensure you get your message across to others.
EDTEC 700 Section 4: 3-D Multi-user

and learners can change their appearance at will? We'll look at simulations, role-plays,
cross-cultural exchanges, 3-D WebQuests and more while examining issues of identity
and etiquette. Participants will create a lesson plan, a reflection piece, and a well-dressed
