Module 4 Reflection

How can technology be used most effectively to
support and assess student learning?

Technology can be used to support student learning in a variety of ways. Powerpoints and videos can be used to help visual learners "see" the information that is being spoken audibly. By using a technology project to assess student learning, the students learn how to use technology while using the skills they gained in the unit. For example, by having students create a PowerPoint on a jungle animal for a Science unit, the students learn how to use PowerPoint and they learn about a jungle animal. Many of these projects require higher order thinking skills. Technology can be used by students to create charts and graphs. A blog could be used to gauge student understanding of the material taught in class, as an alternative or in addition to, careful questioning.
