Technologies for Teaching: Strategies and Pitfalls
Meloni, Julie
Education Digest: Essential Readings Condensed for Quick Review, v76 n8 p23-27 Apr 2011
It isn't a stretch to say that the definitions of "teaching online" and "teaching with technology" vary, even from instructor to instructor. Whatever the level of technology, and regardless of teachers' comfort level with it, one has to remember that for all that educational technology can offer through new communication methods and the ability to reach a wider range of students, it is no panacea. The author stresses that an instructor must still deliver relevant material, enable students to achieve course goals, and assess their work. Students must still learn the material, use assignments and discussion opportunities to achieve course goals, and, ultimately, produce work to be assessed. In this article, the author discusses tools and processes that can help instructors leverage pedagogical and content expertise when bringing technology into the classroom or managing a classroom that exists entirely in a virtual space.
