Intentional Use of Technology to meet the needs of all learners in an inclusive classroom
with Mary Schillinger
Today's classrooms use combinations of print and digital media and attempt to reach students of different backgrounds, cultures, interests, and skills. Teachers are tasked with taming this chaos to achieve increasingly rigorous learning goals. Educational Technology is engaging, enhancing, and a powerful tool. Just as with any educational resource, educational technology tools must be selected with a clear focus on student outcomes and applied with intent and purpose in order to realize their potential to help all students across all subjects.
Finding the right tools to meet your learning goals doesn’t have to be difficult. We will help you develop guidelines focusing on intentional and selective use of technology in ways that will help you achieve your desired curriculum goals and student achievement outcomes.
