Educational Technology

←Back to I Believe…(Philosophy)

♦  I believe that effective use of educational technologies can:

•  Help me to stay current and constantly learn within the field of education

Provide an authentic, international audience for student writing and voice

Bring experts into the classroom

Engage students

Open the door to alternative forms of assessment

Create a learning environment that goes beyond the four walls of the classroom

Promote collaboration and inquiry

Help students become independent, intrinsically motivated, lifelong learners

Take students from “knowledgeable to knowledge-able” (Michael Wesch)
