Teaching with technological tools

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Computer-based instructional tools are just the latest in a long line of educational technologies that probably started when someone picked up a piece of cinder and wrote on a cave wall. It is common to become fascinated-or infatuated-with new technologies, but it is important to remember that these technologies are simply tools to support learning. No technology, no matter how sophisticated, will supplant a skilled teacher, effective instructional methods and designs, or-most importantly-the central role of the student in the learning process. This chapter will discuss how tools such as computer-based tutorials, virtual patients, just-in-time learning, presentation software, audience response systems, and videos can be used to effectively enhance learning.
