Using Technologies
Technologies should only be used when they serve a purpose in your teaching. Technologies might be used to:
  1. Help students achieve the intended learning outcomes.
  2. Offer students choice concerning where and when they learn.
  3. Deliver formative and/or summative assessments.

Available Technologies

There are various technologies and media that might be used to support students in their learning. Teaching and learning considerations will drive the choice of technologies and/or media.

However, the learning curve for the use of a technology/media will also determine the choices that are made. Your choice of technology and/or media will be constrained by your level of expertise, the time that you have to learn new skills and by the availability of technology and media support at your institution.
