Technology offers numerous innovative tools that teachers can use in order to enhance their students’ learning experience. However, it is important to note that teaching with technology is not only about keeping up to the date of all the latest teaching tools available, but also about knowing how to effectively integrate them into your teaching.
In this course, you will learn the advantages of using technology, as well as the possible stumbling blocks. Whether you are teaching online or in a traditional classroom, learners will get an inside look at the right way to use technology in order to enhance learning and teaching.
Teaching with technology may evoke many different images, depending on the experience of students or instructors. For some, this might mean the use of student classroom response systems in lectures or PowerPoint presentations. Others may also think of pod-casting lectures or the use of certain disciplinary applications.
Although it is natural to consider these tools as a starting point, the use of technology in teaching is more likely to be appropriate and effective when it is integrated into a process of careful planning that includes several factors involved in learning and teaching.
To be able to use technology more effective and maximise its benefits in teaching, instructors need to evaluate the course goals as they do when planning a new course. They need determine what they expect their students will learn from the course, the knowledge and skills they want them to acquire at the end of the term and the teaching strategies that will best help their students obtain such goals. With these, they can design appropriate learning activities and suitable technologies that will help students reach their goals.
At Global Edulink, we help students to effectively apply digital technologies to the use of UDL principles to allow a more efficient and easier customisation of curricula for learners. Technological advances and the learning science have made efficient and quick personalisation of curricula possible in more cost-effective and practical ways. Many such technologies have built-in scaffolds, systems, supports and even challenges to help learners navigate, understand and engage with different learning environments.
Instructional technologies have been a crucial part of learning and teaching within the classroom and working with entirely online environments. In addition, resources for assisting and educating faculty regarding the best practices for the use of technology has become vital.
The use of technology must go beyond just knowing how to work with certain software or apps, but educators also need to understand ways in which such new tools can make a huge impact on student learning. In this course, our students will be able to know how to properly integrate technology to promote an enhanced learning experience for their students.
