Technology can make learning more engaging. Here’s 3 ways to embed technology in learning.
1. Allow students to use digital tools to create their own content. It overcomes boredom and encourages active learning. There are lots of ideas on this website here at http://procatdigital.co.uk.
2. Teachers need to provide some direction for students when sourcing information on the internet, to increase student time and practice, otherwise students can waste too much time watching videos or checking social media. Padlet is a useful digital tool to use for this https://padlet.com and http://tripticoplus.com
3. Using quizzes like http://www.socrative.com are a brilliant form of assessment and where technology can offer good support to Teachers. PROCAT students love Socrative! They want to use this more to test their learning and understanding.
