PS II Integration

  • Marlo updated the committee on efforts to integrate technology in a more systematic way into PS II.  Marlo has added the following items to the instructor questionnaire sent out by the PS II coordinator (Danny) with an eye to being able to identify technology integration components or infuse that into the PS II experience.  That data is forthcoming.
  • PS II Integration Questions
    1.  Is there a significant component of what you do in with your PS II students, that could be just as appropriately covered in PS I?  This might result in trading time with the Ed Tech module (Ed 3508) of PS I.


    If Yes, please describe those components.

    2.  Is there an aspect of what you are currently doing with your PS II students to integrate technology that you could regularize (do every year)?  Context for this question:  The purpose is so the Faculty can say, this is how PS II students are demonstrating technology integration.

    3.  Are there alternative ways of having PS II students integrate technology into their work?
