Masters of Educational Technology Portfolio

Hello! My name is Jared Amalong and I am a candidate for the Masters in Educational Technology at Boise State University. Reflecting on my coursework, I experienced, learned about, planned and evaluated educational technology innovations. This portfolio is a synthesis of that coursework.

Educational technology has accelerated the way in which students learn.  Like never before, students are connected to information and resources.  Digital tools have allowed students to create in ways previously inconceivable.  Those creations are shared with authentic audiences and are not limited to boundaries.

Yet the rapid pace of change in educational technology has created gaps in teaching practices that have led to inequitable access for students.  Ongoing professional development and professional learning networks are critical to advancing the practices of all teachers.  The Boise State University Masters in Educational Technology provided me with ongoing professional learning experiences and a professional learning network of peers and faculty, many of whom I look forward to collaborating with in future years.
