Technology in the Classroom
This course will look at the integration of technology into the traditional classroom. This course will be both practical and theoretical in nature with a clear line of connection drawn between both. This course is underpinned by the SAMR model of use of technology in the classroom.
This course aims to provide a clear and usable overview to teachers of a range of online tools and platforms that can be integrated into a language classroom as well as providing some tips for utilisation of said technology. This course will aim to communicate with the participants in language that they can understand and cut through the jargon to find some practical usages.
