Think Technology Think about all the technology you use throughout your day here at school. What do you or your teachers use?
Think about learning styles and developmental aspects of the learner Example: My 6 th period class learns best through hands-on activities and projects, my 7 th period class learns best by discussions and verbal directions. Example: Giving a written test in Braille for a students with a visual impairment. Example: Giving a 2 nd grader 2 days to complete an essay…bad idea.
