Program for Online Teaching Certificate Class 2012-13
Week 1 potcert
My name Felton Square; I’m an Enterprise Architect for Multimedia / Instructional Media Technologist at Alcorn State University Lorman, MS. I have a background and a degree in Electronic Engineering Technology, my experience range from information technology to radio/television broadcast and production.
I’m technical project manager for a mass deployment of instructional technology with a variety of technology related tool from smart -boards to lecture capture recorders and video conferencing equipment including distance
learning equipment . This project started with a focus to equipment our faculty with tools to enhance the classroom learning experience.
The goal is to get our faculty information literate and skilled at commanding technology used to process access to information and connected to a larger world of education professionals and institutions fostering collaboration. I’m coming to the end of the first phase of this project; deployment of technology and transitioning into application, and I’m taking on the role of teaching the teacher. Even though I have taught at the college level I need to enhance my skill-set to better help my faculty with commanding and integrating technology into their pedagogies so they can be innovative and transform to this next level of instructive strategies needed to process all this information we now have access to.
In-turn hopefully these skills will be transferred to our students across all disciplines, so I hope this class can help me teach the teacher. I’m excited!
