Technology & Learning
We must not use technology just because it is available. We must use it when, and only when, we can see how it will enable us to do the education job better.Herbert A. Simon, Carnegie Mellon University
When you integrate technology into a course, it’s important to identify the desired learning outcomes. Use technology that enables learning interactions that support these outcomes. Brown College’s technology group has a helpful teaching with technology website. The resource below can help you discover new ways to teach with technology. Use their ideas to create a more self directed learning environment in your classroom.
