Teaching Technology

The effective teacher has no choice but to be absolutely on top of the technological tools available to assist learners. Such tools can be enormously effective - inducing even the most reluctant learners to pay attention and enjoy the learning process. Happily, it can also makes the teacher’s job very much easier. But the choice of technology is not always that simple – there is a bewildering array of tech tools available and the effective teacher has to learn which are the best tools to choose. They should never lose sight of the ultimate goal – which is to improve student learning.
