CUIN 7318 Course Reflections
What are your three most favorite course topics? Why are they your favorite?
- Ethics, Copyright and Fair Use. This topic is almost avoided in many circles, mostly because it seems like no one really knows the answers. This helped to clarify and illustrate the importance of it.
- Bring Your Own Device because it seems like the most realistic and viable option for providing students with access to technology.
- Information and Communications Technology because the U.S. often seems to operate in a vaccuum, and its eyeopening to see how other countries of the world are doing it (or not doing it) when it comes to ICT.
How have the issues studied in this course affected your teaching practice and/or your thinking about education in general?
What other topics, that we did not study, would you suggest for next summer’s IT Issues course (CUIN 7319)?
*The success, setbacks, and adjustments made using e-readers. I assume kids are adapting well to these, since many are now starting off using them. As an adult I go back and forth . . . literally and figuratively. I love having an e-reader for convenience, but I also love a hardcopy and love highlight and make notes in the margins. I do this to some degree with e-readers, but it’s not the same. I wonder what the research says about how kids are interfacing with this. Is everyone ready to abandon the hardcopy?!
*More investigation into the Reverse or Flipped Classroom
