Using Technology to Improve the Classroom Experience
Learning technologies such as Softchalk can enhance and support the learning experience in face-to-face classroom settings. With new technologies always emerging, which technologies should you embrace? As educators, our goal should be to let our course content drive our use of technology, not the other way around. This session will introduce you to pedagogically appropriate learning activities and then share the technology tools available at UofL to help you achieve your learning goals. No technology can solve all our challenges, so we will also identify pitfalls of technology use in teaching.
After attending this session, you will be able to:
- Identify tools to use to enhance the classroom experience;
- Identify and avoid three pitfalls of technology use in teaching; and
- Match assignments with appropriate technology tools.
