Getting to grips with ed-tech (education technology)
What aspects of technology I've found work well in the classroom
The remote classrooms and lockdowns have forced me to revisit my rather antiquated and technophobic ways. I have had to face this technology-classroom-teacher-student dialogue in all its digital reality.
Too much technology
What are the actual benefits of using technology in the classroom - and what could be done better without it?
Whilst technology is needed for a lot of my lessons I try to have periods of the class where it’s not used. If I’m not careful I can turn into a lecturer using screens, rather than a teacher using different teaching methods.
