Educators Work To Better Integrate Technology Into The Classroom

By AMY GOLOD, US News

American university professors do not teach education students a universal, tried-and-true method for how to incorporate technology in their classroom instruction. That the digital revolution evolves at a rapid pace and that technology has become so subject-specific means universities cannot address these shifts and create a standard curriculum. As a result, educators have become more resourceful and ingenious in their teaching, professors say. “Large-scale studies show that the technology itself doesn’t necessarily make a difference. What does make a difference is well-designed technology coupled with well-prepared teachers,” says Prof. Steve Kerr, chair of curriculum and instruction at the University of Washington’s College of Education in Seattle.
