This website has been created for participants in EDUC 4000/3-255 Special Topics: Technology in the Classroom.  In the spirit of this course, the syllabus, assignment criteria and all reading materials and texts will be available through this site.  You can navigate this site using the "sidebar", which is found to the right.


While the content of this course is available online and assignments are preferred in electronic format via e-mail, attendance is expected and will be critical to the outcome of the course as much of the learning will be hands-on and face-to-face.


I am looking forward to facilitating and participating in this course with you,



Andrew Volk
