  • Technology use in the Classroom
    Advantages
    Technology in the Classroom is an exceptional tool that teachers can use
    to:
    􀂍 Inspire
    􀂍 Stimulate thought and creativity
    􀂍 Build a common experience for all students
    􀂍 Offer different perspectives
    􀂍 Reinforce other material or topics
    􀂍 Build skills for listening, observation and verbalization
    􀂍 Meet learning objectives
    􀂍 Expand critical thinking skills
    􀂍 Bring new resources and places into the classroom
    Video is an important learning tool. We know from research1 that
    we tend to remember:
    􀂍 10% of what we read
    􀂍 20% of what we hear
    􀂍 30% of what we see
    􀂍 50% of what we hear and see
    􀂍 70%-90% of what we see, hear & do

    learn from a specific lesson, but show
    them examples that help develop
    understanding.
