Course content

Build an understanding of the key principles that underpin the integration of technology into teaching and learning
Learn to use the key technologies that can really impact on teaching and learning with a focus on those tools that cover a range of areas and are useful in a range of contexts
Learn about alternative ways to assess your students both formatively and summatively
Consider some of the challenges that teachers might face in introducing more technology into their delivery
Looking at the role that independent learning plays in online/blended learning

This is not a course for advanced users. This is a course for teachers who may have some ideas about teaching online but need to connect it all together by building up their understanding of the core principles behind the use of technology. It is for teachers who use technology but not necessarily in any systematic or organised way. The course will also develop your technical skills in a number of key areas too. You need a PC or Mac and a gmail account to participate in this course.
