Using Technology to Support Students' Mastery of Academic Studies. Best Practices Newsletter
Southern Regional Education Board (SREB)
For decades, classroom instruction was dominated by lectures, textbooks and note-taking. And for decades, students have often been bored and unengaged. They took notes and did what they had to do to memorize lessons just long enough to pass an exam. But short-term memorization does not help much in preparing students for college, advanced training and careers. The omnipresence of the Internet and proliferation of technology captivates students. Even technophobic teachers realize if they are going to reach students, they must embrace technology and change how they deliver instruction. This newsletter illustrates how technology enhances classroom instruction. It engages students, allows for immediate feedback and facilitates data-driven instruction that ultimately charts a course that prepares students for meeting college- and career-readiness standards.
