Description

Learning with technology doesn’t happen because a specific tool “revolutionises” education; it happens when proven teaching strategies intersect with proven technology tools. Yet, even today, it’s not uncommon for teachers to use a tool because it’s “fun” or because the developer promises it will help students learn.


 

Learning First, Technology Second provides teachers the professional learning they need to move from arbitrary uses of technology in their classrooms to thoughtful ways of adding value to student learning.


 

This book includes



  • an introduction to the Triple E Framework that helps teachers engage students in time-on-task learning, enhance learning experiences beyond traditional means and extend learning opportunities to bridge classroom learning with students’ everyday lives

  • effective strategies for using technology to create authentic learning experiences for their students

  • case studies to guide appropriate tech integration

  • a lesson planning template to show teachers how to effectively frame technology choices and apply them in instruction.
