Android App Development, April 2020 -
My teaching is in line with the ISTE standard (International Society for Technology in Education). My mission is to prepare students to thrive in the Innovation Age by teaching them to think at three levels:
WHAT: what is the basic concept?
SO WHAT: what is its relevance and what is it related to?
NOW WHAT: what can I do with what I have learned to find solutions to unmet needs?
I aim to use app development process to help students develop the key competences for 21st-century learners, aka. the ”Four Cs”: Creativity, Critical Thinking, Communication, and Collaboration.
I'm also committed to educational research surrounding learning design for integrating technology and incorporating the 4Cs. I combine a variety of learning technologies in my class to enhance students' learning experience and outcomes.
Currently we are organizing a special track in the IEEE International Conference on Teaching, Assessment and Learning for Engineering (TALE) 2020, which will take place on 8-11 December in Takamatsu, Japan.
