Technology in the Classroom
Instead of starting with technology skills and applying them to education, a better approach would be to start with good teaching practices and consider how technology can strengthen those practices.
Questions to Ponder:
Should we reconstruct what we do from the ground up when selecting/designing technology-enhanced instruction and assessment, or try to duplicate what we currently do in the classroom?
How can we organize digital resources for teachers?
How can we make the technology feel invisible rather than a distraction or barrier to learning?
How does technology allow us to do things that aren't otherwise possible?
