Intro: Teaching with Technology

Jamie Henthorn's picture

 

Teaching with technology is a style many scholars are familiarizing themselves with. What is meant by teaching with technology was kept purposefully broad for this survey and includes teaching tablet based projects, web writing and social media projects that continue outside of the classroom, developing new software for a class, synchronous/asynchronous online learning, and teaching a MOOC.

We have invited teachers to share either meta-reflections on technology in the classroom, or reflections on the outcomes of specific projects. The goal of this survey is to see and share exactly how technology is used in the classroom and what we gain from its use. Specifically, we want to consider any unexpected outcomes of the use of technology.

If you find yourself reading the responses and feel as though you would also like to contribute as well, MediaCommons allows for additional contributors after the survey has begun. You are free to email the editors a short proposal at mediacommons.odu@gmail.com and we have left space for additional responses in our schedule.
