Using Technology in the Classroom: A Great Way to Engage and Inspire Learners (2011)

This resource is aimed at educators who may feel intimidated by the use of technology in the classroom and may fear that it will harm traditional literacy and social relations.

The authors explain how technology has given rise to “new literacies” that coexist with traditional ones. They present a list of ideas for using technology in the classroom; offer tips on Internet safety; and provide definitions for terms like wiki and blog.

The authors also discuss how current technology has updated social customs, not eliminated them. For instance, one generation of students communicated by passing notes in class, while today’s teenagers keep in touch by posting messages on Facebook.
