Jon Beedle, Ph.D.

Associate Professor, Department of Curriculum, Instruction and Special Education

The Instructional Technology & Design program focuses on preparing students to infuse technology in future employment and in life. Specifically we teach elementary & special education pre-service teachers and students that want to work in professional development and training in military, business, and government. At this time, some of the research I am focusing on includes emerging technologies, making the classroom teacher mobile (instead of the sage on the stage), online safety, cyberbullying, iPads and other tablets, and gamification in the classroom.
