LTML hosted the annual LT M.Ed. Student Showcase event on Friday evening, May 9. It was a fantastic opportunity to celebrate a very successful academic year and for many of our graduates to present the final capstone project they accomplished to complete their M.Ed. in Learning Technologies. These practical projects reflect students’ professional goals and require real-world application of the LT knowledge they gain in our program. Projects are often accomplished within students’ current work contexts, which are richly diverse and varied. Some examples of the projects showcased this year include international implementation of mobile devices to provide ICT access to residents in rural areas of the Dominican Republic, the development of a professional development curriculum to prepare teachers for a 1:1 initiative in K-12 settings, designing a framework for an online program in theological studies for adult learners, the design and development of a mobile application to support childhood literacy, the development of an initiative to encourage kids to explore and learn about the natural environment using technology devices, and the creation and publication of an eBook for instructional designers to guide aesthetic and pedagogically grounded academic slide design.
Sincere congratulations to all of our Fall 2013 and Spring 2014 graduates who earned an M.Ed. in Learning Technologies: CJ Sorensen, Marit Oberle, Jean Watson, Joan Freese, Kacie Kline, Lana Peterson, Ann Fandrey, Natt Friday, Heather Dorr, Sandy Ludwig, Kristin Lundstrum, Earl J.
