How do 21st century teachers utilize technology to assess student learning?
We will have a guest speaker visiting our class next week who will share experiences as a teacher utilizing technology in the classroom.
What are three questions you have for a teacher pertaining to 21st century teaching and/or teaching with technology in the classroom?
As we approach the end of the semester, reflect upon the technologies that have been introduced. What technologies would you like more exposure to? What technologies do you feel comfortable working with? Revisit your strengths and weaknesses using technology. Discuss areas that you have improved in and areas where you still feel you need more experience.
How do 21st century teachers use multimedia technologies to enhance student learning?
This week primarily focused on the use of communication and collaboration tools in education. How can 21st century teachers employ these tools to enhance student learning?
What do you perceive to be the advantages and disadvantages of using software to promote student learning? How do you think you could use software in your own classroom?
The Internet is an expansive resource with many features for teachers to use. In what ways do you think you might use the Internet in your teaching to promote student learning?
One of the standards for teachers in the 21st century outlined in the ISTE NETS-T is: “Promote and Model Digital Citizenship and Responsibility.”
How do you believe this standard fits in with your role as a teacher?
This week, we focused on planning the technology-integrated instruction. For your blog post, address the following questions:
- How does planning facilitate integrating technology into the classroom?
- For which type of instructional activity would technology be most useful? Why?
This week’s reading materials primarily focused on learning theories and how technology can be used to support learning.
Using the readings from this week, your own ideas about teaching and learning, and relevant learning theories, develop your own philosophy of teaching and learning with technology.
A teaching philosophy is your belief of teaching and learning. It stems from your beliefs about how people learn and the roles of the teacher and student in learning. Using one or more learning theories, develop a working philosophy of teaching that incorporates technology.
