Technology infusing classrooms with digital learning tools expand traditional course offerings, experiences, and learning materials, thus increasing student engagement and promote learning. For example, word processing application and collaborative editing/revising tools for student writing.
How will teachers plan the use of technology to help students learn academic content?
Technology allows students, teachers, classrooms and even schools to communicate beyond the walls of the classroom and keep s everyone connected.
For students, teachers can use online teaching tools such as Voicethread, Edmodo or Class Blogs to connect their classrooms. For parents, teachers can use social media such as Facebook, Twitter, Messenger to communicate on time about their concerns, student performance or any other important stuff. Of course, teachers need to ensure that such interactions are meaningful and appropriate.
