Write a four to six (4-6) page paper in which you:

  1. Debate the overall      merits of the selected emerging technology over the three (3) others that you had previously identified from Assignment 1.
  2. Compare and contrast the emerging technology that you chose with the three (3) other emerging      technologies that you did not choose. Your comparison should address the following:

  1. Three (3) methods in which the attributes and features of each address the needs and or challenges inherent in the educational setting or related to the scenario you selected in Assignment 1.
  2. Significant ways in which each technology supports meaningful learning. 
  3. Three (3) attributes and / or features inherent in each emerging technology that instructors may use to address select characteristics of the 21st Century student population that you had previously identified.
  4. Three (3) aspects of your selected technology that best address two (2) of the NETS-S standards for using technology to guide learning. 
  5. Provide at least five (5) sources that document detailed information about this emerging technology. The sources must be written within the last five (5) years.

Your assignment must follow these formatting requirements:

  • Be typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all sides; citations and references must follow APA or school-specific format.      Check with your professor for any additional instructions.
  • Include a cover page containing the title of the assignment, the student’s name, the professor’s name, the course title, and the date. The cover page and the reference page are not included in the required assignment page length. 

The specific course learning outcomes associated with this assignment are:

· Review current research related to emerging technologies for instruction and learning.

· Analyze the effects of technology in different instructional settings.

  • Analyze the characteristics of 21st Century learners to aid in determining effective ways of using technologies for teaching and learning.
  • Use technology and information resources to research issues in designing, developing, and evaluating educational technologies.
  • Write clearly and concisely about issues in designing, developing, and evaluating educational technologies.

Grading for this assignment will be based on answer quality, logic / organization of the paper, and language and writing skills, using the following rubric.
