Technology in Teaching and Learning


Technology is one of part of our daily life. As teachers, we integrate technology in teaching for a variety of reasons.

How much time you do spend applying technology to teaching? Do you think technology should play a big portion in teaching and learning?

Thanks for the questions! The approach I take for using digital technology is one of focusing on authentic uses in teaching and learning. I think that the Challenge Based Learning Framework explains it nicely:

“Authentic Use of Technology - Technology is used to research, communicate, organize, create, evaluate, document and persuade”.

And in those practices I think technology should play a big role in Teaching and Learning.

When thinking about technology in teaching & learning, I think it's important to remember that, at one point in history, even pencils were a technological innovation in the classroom :)

It's valuable for us to remember that new technologies are just tools that support the pedagogies we use in our practice, so we have to be intentional about their role in the classroom. I've found Liz Kolb's Triple E Framework helpful in considering whether my uses of technology for teaching & learning are truly supporting engagement and enhancing the learning experience or just acting like an add-on.

Great topic for conversation!
