We should emphasize learning goals and strategies when planning lessons. We should then select tools that match purpose. Jamie McKenzie
The technology and applications we have explored in these sessions are tools that we can use to enhance learning based on the curriculum. We first must look at what we want the students to learn, and then how we might be able to achieve this using the tools we have – this may be a white board, a pencil, a book or even a computer.
