Pedagogy, Technology, and Content are all influenced by Context!!!
Consider the age, stage, place, and lifestyle of your learners!
Consider too the resources available to your students. (laptops, i-pads, etc.)
Teaching with technology is a wicked problem. Wicked problems require creative solutions. Teachers are designers of the total package!
Increased technology does not lead to student learning. Instead, effectiveness of technology depends on the teaching approaches used in conjuction with the technology. The integration of pedagogy, content, and technology are absolutely essential!
blackboards, white boards, SMART boards, powerpoints, calculators, GPS, compass, computers, etc.
•technologies as old and new, analog and digital
•as having attributes
•as offering affordances and constraints
•as solving problems (and creates them)
