Integration of Educational Technology Portfolio
Objective 2: Identify learning theories and technology tools that support them.
I can identify learning theories and use technology tools that support them.
I used the PowerPoint presentation presented in the artifact section as an example of using direct instruction aided by a technology tool, in this case PowerPoint. PowerPoint is a great tool for direct instruction because it allows an instructor to present information easily and directly to students. It supports linearly presenting and building upon information that you normally see when practicing direct instruction.
I plan to continually evaluate and select an appropriate tool when preparing instructional materials.
