I have been assigned the task of teaching an "advanced technology" course this year to 8th graders (the irony here is that I have never taught a "basic technology" course). As I have found out the hard way, no one in the school district has taught this course either. So...
Can anyone point me in the direction of a course outline/syllabus that I could borrow heavily from so that I can have a blueprint for the trimester/semester/year. I am planning on addressing blogs, wikis, podcasting, and videocasting (?). I would like to use the students cell phones as well as the new PC computers that are coming with all of the bells and whistles. I have some basic ideas on where I want to go but I would love some ideas on how to get there.
Oh, yeah, maybe a rubric or two would be helpful as well...
Any of your thoughts or ideas would be greatly appreciated.
