Technology is a key player in the teaching and learning equation. It has become an eventuality that every teacher should live with. We no longer have the choice whether to use it or nor because our students love it and probably use it much more than we do.
Technology has even changed that old and traditional notion of the teacher as the main source of knowledge and turned him/her into a simple facilitator,organizer, and collaborator. Learning has become more and more interactive with an increased dose of engagement, no wonder we are teaching with the thing students love the most : technology.
But for this technology to be effective in our instruction teachers need to clearly define the when, how, and why(s) of using it.In this regard, Educational Technology and Mobile Learning has already posted a Must Have Technology Checklist for teachers and in this post we are sharing with you two awesome slideshows about tips every teacher should consider before and while using technology in their classrooms that Sherry Terrell shared with us.
