These are customizable, modularized, TPACK*-based online “short courses” that are designed to help elementary and secondary teachers learn to plan technologically enhanced, curriculum-based lessons, projects, and units. The content is divided into brief, sequential modules that help teachers to build their TPACK while learning to design technologically enriched instruction. Each module begins with an overview and learning goal for the segment, and is presented as video-based content that includes narrated slides, interviews with practicing teachers, imagery, and additional online resources. Each of the videos ranges from 2-13 minutes in length, and includes verbatim closed captioning. In addition to the video segments, the modules also offer editable student learning guides that scaffold each step of the learning, and regular prompts for in-class or online discussion with colleagues and mentors. The modules can be used as a supplement to face-to-face courses or as a completely online learning experience that might span two-three weeks. We have created different versions of the short course for elementary and secondary preservice teachers (with versions for experienced teachers forthcoming) so that we could customize the examples included to maximize relevance for the learners. We gratefully acknowledge an OER minigrant awarded by Swem Library at the College of William & Mary in 2015-2016 that supported this work. *TPACK is "technology, pedagogy, and content knowledge," or the knowledge that instructors need to be able to effectively incorporate use of educational technologies into students' learning.
