Teaching And Learning With Technology

Teaching and learning with technology is not just about teaching online. We use technology in our in-person classrooms too, and in hybrid settings. Whatever we use, the important point is to be deliberate and only use tools we absolutely need to avoid overloading the learner and ourselves. We recommend starting with Thomas J. Tobin’s learning path on Addressing Technology-Access Barriers, which addresses this point, before exploring the other resources on offer.
