How to Enhance Your Instruction with Technology: Making Your "Two" Do Lists
0.75 Continuing Education Credit Hours
Category: Education Fundamentals
Effective educational strategies are those that produce an intended result and can produce a deep or vivid impression. When contemplating the use of educational technology answering two "do" questions helps insure that your educational innovations are effective and strategic. The Two "Do" Questions are 1) What do you want students to be able to do as a result of your instruction?...and 2) What do you want students to do with the technology? In this Module you will learn about how considering the first question leads to the development of your learning objectives and how considering the second question helps to prepare you to more skillfully leverage technology.
