Teaching with Technology

Teaching with Technology

When we think about teaching with technology, we often think first of sophisticated gadgetry and cutting-edge software. After all, with the increased ubiquity of laptops, tablets, and cell phones in our classrooms, it is easy to assume that teaching with technology refers only to adopting the latest and best tools or that it will solve a teaching issue. 

However, teaching with technology refers to a lot more than just tool use. Instead, when we talk about teaching with technology, what we are talking about is how to make sound pedagogical choices about the effects of using particular tools for student learning. 

CELT is here to help you (novice, expert, and everyone in between) find creative and constructive ways to integrate technology into your class. If you are looking to flip your class, make use of Canvas, or simply want to experiment with some new instructional technologies, we can help.

To arrange an appointment or consultation, call CELT at 515-294-5357 or email celt@iastate.edu.
