Assignment 1: Research Project Proposal on Emerging Technologies
Due Week 3 and worth 200 points
Refer to the Scenario for the Assignments.
Note: As part of the technology project, you need to explain your preliminary steps for implementing the project. Discuss your action plan for developing the technology project you chose for this course. You can go on the Internet to review existing technology plans to help you formulate the content of your project.
The landscape of education and training has been evolving and changing rapidly over the past decade. The emergence of new tools and new ways to incorporate activities that mirror “real world” problem solving and experiences have opened up new ways to engage and encourage learners to think outside of their textbooks. In this assignment, you will present your rationale and action plan for implementing two (2) different forms of emerging technology.
Write a three or four (3–4) page (or 900–1,200 word) paper in which you:
Explain the purpose of and rationale for your choice of these technologies for your project proposal in an introductory paragraph.
Explain at least three (3) reasons why these particular tools are considered an emerging technology to the educational or training setting you have chosen. Using the current literature, support your rationale.
Outline three to five (3–5) possible benefits of these two technologies in the classroom or workplace setting.
Discuss three to five (3–5) instructional goals and how incorporating these technologies support those goals.
State three to five (3–5) course outcomes that your students should be able to achieve by the end of the course.
