How Can I Align Technology with My Pedagogical Goals? - 20-Minute Mentor
Available from Magna Publications, Inc.
Many educators have an uneasy alliance with technology. They may be unsure about its value in accomplishing learning goals or how it can enhance the teaching experience.
Because technologies are not necessarily designed with the classroom in mind, educators who want to avail themselves of these tools are often challenged on how to integrate them into the course curriculum.
How Can I Align Technology with My Pedagogical Goals? the 20-Minute Mentor program from Magna Publications, discusses ways that educators can use selected technology tools to drive student performance and engagement.
Dave Yearwood, Ph.D., the award-winning chair of the technology department at the University of North Dakota, provides practical strategies for e-pedagogy—the relationship between pedagogical practices and technology.
Educators will learn how to conduct a self-assessment to identify their strengths and where they need to work on using technology to accomplish pedagogical goals. Dr. Yearwood will also outline different teaching methods in which technology can help students experience content in a variety of ways—hearing, seeing, feeling, and practicing it.
Educators will also discover how to become better facilitators of content and how technology tools can unleash students' natural curiosity and empathy.
