The College of Education and Social Work Technology Center supports technology integration throughout the Teacher Preparation Program. It works with faculty and students to develop the technology skills needed in 21st century classrooms. Services provided through the Technology Center enable faculty and students to succeed in teaching and learning in technology rich environments.
The Tech Center loans equipment for use by faculty and students throughout the Teacher Preparation Program. We have many items to borrow including laptops and iPads for short-term and long-term loan. Carts of iPads and laptops can be borrowed in Recitation and Wayne Halls.
The Tech Center staff provides training on both hardware and software. Training is delivered in a workshop setting as well as individually. Some topics of training include: SmartBoard, Weebly, Piktochart, iMovie, iPad apps, video transfer and Swivl use. Training may be individually requested. For more information about Training and Resources see listings on our web page.
Tech Center staff stays current with emergent technology being use in education and explores ways to integrate into the classroom. We offer training in 3D printing, RamCast, Hour of Code, Double telepresence robot, and 360 Fly Camera.
Routine maintenance by the Tech Center in Recitation Hall includes checking of CESW classrooms for projection, RamCast , and SmartBoard functionality. We support technology in Wayne 503 and 511, maintain the Mac lab in Recitation 110 and 306, and run updates for technology loaned by the Tech Center.
Tech Center staff offers troubleshooting to CESW faculty, staff, and students. We prefer to troubleshoot or set-up well in advance of need. While we make every attempt to respond to emergencies, staff availability is limited.
