The way students learn changes when they have access to digital tools. The Digital Classroom demonstrates that using technology to enhance students’ learning is not dependent on a specific learning management system or software – it is about changing the pedagogy with the help of an arsenal of useful tools and methods.
This practical book introduces easy to use methods to all teachers in digital classrooms with the intention to make it simple, accessible, and achievable for everyone. It is not only about the tools, and the how and why, but also about changing the pedagogy making the learning more relevant to the students. When you open the classroom to the rest of the world, the teacher becomes more important than ever. Topics in the book include:
- Technology and deeper learning
- Social media in the global classroom
- Building a personal learning network
- The flipped classroom and cooperative learning
- The use of iPads in primary and middle school
- Teaching with videogames
- Special education
- Digital citizenship
Digital tools can play a key role in making learning happen and what the teachers know about the use of technology is key. The Digital Classroom will be of great interest to teachers and trainee teachers who wish to develop their digital competency by using the book as part of their professional learning.
