How Can I Use Technology to Improve Learning?

The rapidly expanding body of instructional technologies can quickly overwhelm you, but it doesn’t have to when you know how to narrow your options. This program presents some simple guiding principles for choosing technology to use in the classroom.

Choose the best technology for your courses

Weaned on cell phones and laptops, nurtured on tablets, and finished on Fitbits and other gadgets, today’s students are true digital natives.

In fact, much of what they experience originates and exists entirely online.

It is where they go for connections, for ideas, for answers, and more. They are innately and inherently comfortable there.

Some of us, however, are not. While not entirely foreign, technology can be confusing and overwhelming.
The options seem endless and yet still manage to proliferate overnight. It is hard to know what to use and how or when to use it.

Yet the best technologies make aspects of life simpler or better. That is true for higher education, too.
The challenge, of course, is discovering the tools that will resonate with students and engage them in course materials.

While it might seem that identifying those technologies is like searching for a needle in a haystack, there are ways to cull the best options.

If you want to know how to identify the digital tools that will work best for your courses and your students, you’ll want to watch How Can I Use Technology to Improve Learning?, a Magna 20-Minute Mentor with Brigham Young University associate professor Kenneth L. Alford and assistant professor Tyler Griffin.

Alford and Griffin explain how you can identify appropriate educational technologies without becoming a digital expert overnight.
