Learning about Digital Tools
When making decisions about why, where and when to integrate digital tools into the classroom, teachers need to be aware of the tools that are available. The challenge is keeping informed when tools are developed and adapted to educational contexts. Here we will explore and learn about tools that can be accessed, analyzed and used to create digital content by teachers and their students. We will apply a PMI (Plus, Minus, Interesting) chart to each of these various digital technologies as they are integrated into this digital work.
