Technology can have a powerful impact on learning when we focus on the learning and utilise the capabilities of technology.Critical use of technologyWithout knowing how technology can be used we limit our opportunities to utilise it when it may be extremely effective for ourselves and for our studentsTechnology is simply a tool – it can be used well or it can be used poorly – just as any tool or strategy (feedback) can be utilised well or poorly.
Instruction and feedback – Hattie – feedback comes after ‘instruction’ in the learning cycle – Quality ‘instruction’ critical.New ways to provide that instruction – Flip lessons – lecture as homework – class time as questions and application.
