Our main goal in this course is the become proficient in using variety of technology applications to increase classroom effectiveness as a teacher, collaborator, manager and communicator. You will be "meeting" on the Blackboard Discussion board outside of class to discuss course topics.

If you are unable to attend class for any reason, I expect to hear from you as soon as possible as this is a professional courtesy to both the instructor and fellow students. You can find information about Valparaiso University by clicking Valparaiso University. I love to visit the Brauer Art Museum in the VUCA. You should check it out! I highly recommend checking out the sporting events at VU by clicking on Valpo Athletics. In my picture, you will see me in the middle of my former Cub Scouts, who are all now 8th graders. I had been a Cub Scout leader for 5 years with my oldest son, Evan. Best, Prof. Ruth Johnston P.S. I am also the chapter counselor for Kappa Delta Pi, International Education Honor Society.
