Thank you for coming to this blog. Here I will examine how technology is/ isn’t or should / shouldn’t be used in the classroom. I expect to discuss the general idea of ‘computers in the classroom’, iPads and iPods, smartboards, clickers and even powerpoint presentations.
What devices and software have you used in the classroom? How was it received? Do you think it made a difference in the way you taught or the way the material was received?
Share your experiences and I’ll do my best to distill the best practices from our collected anecdotes as well as recent observations from the literature into a readable format that points towards improvements that we, as teachers, can make right now.
If you are a student, your input is valuable too! Perhaps even more valuable. What experiences have you had where technology did or didn’t help you to understand a lesson.
