  • 7. Use cases/case studies • Activity: In pairs or small groups, select an example of a technology which you have used, or could use to support teaching.
  • 8. Plan B • Technology *will* go wrong • Have a backup plan or alternative activity e.g. If a video fails, have alternative demonstration (and perhaps have copy on local VLE, YouTube etc?) • Be aware of inclusivity (not just accessibilty) – technology usually makes life easier • Use a range of technology options to ‘spread the load’ when considering plan B
  • 9. Points for consideration • Would you consider using any technology in your teaching? • Will you plan to implement any ideas/suggestions highlighted in this session? • Consider how you might evaluate its use • Will you need help/ would you like help implementing technology? • How might you report your outcomes – University outlets, Physical Sciences Centre...?
