Illuminate Learning in Your Classroom
Can you get along in your classroom without technology? Perhaps. After all, humanity learned to read, write, and create well before learning to harness electricity. But think about this: We didn't start using light bulbs because candles or lanterns stopped working. We use light bulbs and the electricity that powers them because doing so enhances our lives. In the same way, teachers can use technology to enhance the learning environment for students.
In Illuminate, author, educator, and technology trainer Bethany Petty explains how to use technology to improve your students' learning experiences. You'll discover . . .
Engaging ways to incorporate technology in any classroom
Tips for using apps and QR codes to improve communication with parents
Strategies to empower students (and you) to reflect on and share learning
Practical ideas for increasing collaboration, critical thinking, and creativity
Bethany shares specific how-tos for using a wide variety of apps and tools. She also explains the why behind using technology, and shows you how to use it to meet your students' needs and make learning memorable. After all, it's not about the technology; it's how you use it!
It's time to illuminate learning and use technology to enhance your students' experience.
