Teaching with Technology

Enhance learner engagement with digital tools.

This course is intended to introduce teachers to the fundamentals of integrating technology into the teaching/learning process. Teachers will be exposed to web based applications and other media and communication technologies that can enhance productivity and efficiency in course delivery and evaluation. The method of delivery for this course deliberately sets out, wherever possible, to model the approaches and appropriate use of media and technologies being introduced.  
Consequently, participants will be required to engage in Webinars, Web-logging and Online Collaboration through forums  
PRE-REQUISITES:
Although there are no pre-requisites for participation in this course, a basic knowledge of digital media would be an asset. This knowledge includes turning-on a digital media device, logging into a digital media device, accessing programs and applications, saving files to the hard disk, external storage media and cloud storage, accessing the Internet and email etc.

COURSE REQUIREMENTS:
Participants are required to have access to a personal computer/ tablet and the Internet. To enable effective participation in this course a combination of open-source software, shareware and online media authoring tools will be used. These resources were chosen primarily for ease of use, because they are free, and because they represent current trends in media use and authoring.
