Creating Digital Rich Classrooms: Teaching and Learning in a Digital World
Outside of school, today’s students are accustomed to a high level of interaction and collaboration—with one another and with technology. Inside school, we ask them to power down, assuming that we can help them achieve their fullest potential through traditional stand-and-deliver textbook-driven methods of teaching. It shouldn’t surprise us that these students are bored and disconnected from learning. Instead of asking students to power down during class, power up your lesson plans with digital tools. Design and deliver lessons in which technology plays an integral role. Engage students in solving real-world problems while staying true to standards-aligned curricula. This session provides a research base and practical strategies for using web 2.0 tools to create engaging lessons that transform and enrich content.
