  • About the Book

    This Open Educational Resource (OER) textbook is written as the primary resource for a 3-hour graduate course delivered online by The Teachers College at Emporia State University. The course is designed to prepare school leaders (teachers, instructional coaches, administrators, etc.) for the integration and application of diverse educational technologies into classrooms and schools in ways that reflect a theoretical, research-based, and practical understanding of curriculum development and the effective uses of technology. The course explores practical ways to integrate technology into both teaching and learning and the critical importance of adequate training and professional development for successful integration. This intensive course is delivered completely online over a seven-week period using Canvas. Canvas is a web-based learning management system or LMS. It is used by learning institutions, educators, and students to access and manage online course learning materials and communicate skill development and learning achievement.

I was named a National Distinguished Principal in 1997 and an Apple Distinguished Educator in 1998.

More importantly, I have three totally amazing and adorable grandsons, ages 10, 8, and 3. The older boys live near me in the Kansas City area and we enjoy volunteering in their school (pre-COVID) and attending various school and sports activities. The little one lives in Dallas and we try to see him at least once a month and FaceTime frequently.When I am not teaching you will find me and my wife riding our Harley. I am also an active volunteer for my congregation and serve as Vice President. I hope you enjoy this course and I look forward to getting to know you, as much as an online course permits
