Our focus is regarding teaching strategies that integrate technology in the classroom. There are many wonderful tools available to facultyfrom Jing and VoiceThread to Screencast and Animoto. Since January 2011, I created a system that uses the blog as a way to enhance my teaching strategies to make my classes more interesting and exciting, as well as a way to more effective use my time.
The secret is using the blog as my personal teaching library. I create either a blog post or video once, and then use these over and over in future classes as the need may arise.
Technology now offers faculty the ability to clone themselves to offer students the ability to reinforce lessons in a way that aligns with their learning style. The student is now more in control of their learning when and where that is most convenient for them, as often as they like.
We look forward sharing tips and best practices for technology in the classroom in the weeks ahead.
My best to your success!
