Key Indicators Of Highly Effective Technology Use

Session ID: 233

Presenter: Steven Anderson

Technology in the classroom is becoming nearly as ubiquitous as textbooks and pencils. Each day students encounter lessons designed with technology in mind. However, as educators and school leaders, how do we know if the lesson is highly effective? What can we look for, in any classroom, in the context of learning, to determine if that use of technology is effective or not? When new technologies or instructional practices are introduced into classrooms, it can be a challenge for leaders and educators to communicate how everything fits together to create a richer learning environment. Join us as we will examine the key indicators of highly effective technology use and how school leaders, teachers and students can best identify when technology works and when it does not.
