Code of Professional Ethics in Educational Technology


Artifact Introduction: During our second week in Introduction to Educational Technology class, we were to research a real-life scenario about professional ethics in Educational Technology and compose a paper about the scenario, it’s applicability to certain Codes of Professional Ethics, and a reflection on how we would resolve the scenario to ensure it complies. I chose to write about a scenario that I was involved in during the last academic school year.

Reflection of Learning: I learned that it is not possible to truly teach or facilitate Educational Technology within a classroom without following the standards written in the AECT Code of Professional Ethics. Therefore, in order to teach technology to students, there is a direct moral responsibility to comply with these standards. I also reflected upon the large role that the institution for which educators teach plays in the ability to abide by these standards. How, it is necessary for all educational institutions to develop an awareness and furthermore, begin putting the AECT Code of Professional Ethics into play when making overarching decisions for an educational population. This assignment provided the opportunity for me to truly delve into and become familiar with the Code Professional of Ethics and find their applicability and importance of their role in my life as an educator.This was a great opportunity to read, reflect, and apply the Code of Professional Ethics.

About jasminequezada

I’m extremely lucky to call Boise Idaho, an outdoor haven of a beautiful little city, the place I call home. I teach 4th grade dual language. This means that I teach native English speakers, Spanish, and native Spanish speakers, English, by using both languages to teach the regular 4th grade curriculum to nine year old’s. I also have an extremely creative and inquisitive seven year old son who keeps me playing, laughing, and on my toes all day long, he is my favorite person. My boyfriend’s name is Victor and he is my partner in discovering the outdoors, which is why living in Boise is perfect for us! While I enjoy being outdoors, I also love technology and all of the doors it has opened to humanity to learn, grow, and evolve. This is why I consider it vital for myself as an educator to delve deeper into this technological world so I can continue to serve as a guide for my students, in their discovery of the world.
