Enhancing Student Learning with Technology

We must not use technology just because it is available. We must use it when, and only when, we can see how it will enable us to do the education job better.

Herbert A. Simon, Carnegie Mellon University

For effective integration of technology into a course, it’s important to first identify the desired learning outcomes and then select the technology that enables interactions to support these learning outcomes. Brown’s Instructional Technology Group maintains a Teaching with Technology website to help you discover ways to use technology in your courses. Technology can be used both inside your classroom and to design an online learning environment.
