Learn practical ways to incorporate education technology, such as web resources, video, maps, ebooks, and more, into the classroom.
- Hi, I'm Renaldo Lawrence. And today I want to talk to you about practical ideas teachers can use in their classroom using multimedia. At one time, being prepared for the future or getting a job meant going to university or college first, doing an apprenticeship, or maybe even coming out of high school and finding jobs waiting for you. In today's society, this is no longer the case. And now our students must compete globally for jobs, and in some cases, prepare for jobs that haven't even been invented yet.
It is becoming more and more important that as teachers, we train our students to become independent learners and thinkers. So in this course, I want to show you different ways to create and use interactive content to help engage students. I'll also show you how to help students search the web effectively, and how to use different apps to help students learn. What we're trying to do is to make lessons exciting, and more importantly, getting students engaged in learning by using the creative tools available to us.
Let's get started with practical ideas for our classroom.
