Teacher Tech Training was developed as a resource for teachers who want to know more about using technology with students. Tech tools can be used to encourage deeper reflection in learning, critical thinking, and problem solving. Sure, teachers can and have been teaching these skills for centuries, but technology can make it easier to develop student-centered learning and problem based learning.
Community is a key part of any learning experience. Teacher Tech Training strongly encourages users to interact with each other and discuss the learning that is taking place – there is a lot that you can learn from each other, and we look forward to also learning from our users.
NEW COURSE – Teaching with Digital Games
Teaching with Digital Games is a 7 week course that will take an in-depth look at using games in the K-12 classroom. This course takes a very hands-on approach to learning – it will introduce you to different types of games and how to use them in your classroom. You will have a chance to put the things you learn into practice, and discuss any problems that come up with your peers. At the end of this course you will have an understanding of how games can be effective teaching tools and what you as the teacher can do to support the learning that happens, and you will have developed at least one if not several sample lessons that you can use right away in your classroom.
