Additionally, the Victorian Curriculum features Digital Technologies that guides teachers with their teaching. Technology can also prove to be a time-management tool for teachers. When implementing technology teachers need to be able to effectively use new technologies and rid themselves of outdated strategies (Hyde, Carpenter & Conway, 2011, p.340). Furthermore, the teacher must effectively and purposefully select the resource (Hill, 2014). Overall, this piece highlighted that technology should be included in education as it supports both teaching and learning in the

Teaching Strategies for Students with Severe Disabilities Teachers are regarded as second parents when students are in school. As such, they do not only have a secondary authority over these children but they are also given the responsibility of making sure that students will become globally competent through the quality education they provide. Several teaching strategies and methods are used in order to ensure that students are able not just to comprehend but also retain the lessons they are taught in school. However, educating students nowadays also include those who are severely disabled. Like other normal students, the disabled ones should not be deprived of education too.
Critical Review 1. Teaching with Technology Simon Hooper and Lloyd P. Rieber We all know that technology refers to advancements in the methods and tools we use to learn. In the classroom, technology can encompass all kinds of tools from low-tech pencil, paper, and chalkboard, to the use of presentation software, or high-tech tablets, online collaboration and conferencing tools, and more. The newest technologies allow us to try things in physical and virtual classrooms that were not possible before. Today, I cannot imagine how difficult it is to teach without technology and how hard it is to learn without it.
The promises of educational technology are phenomenal especially in the case of urban school districts. Technology is a versatile and valuable tool for teaching and learning and becoming a way of life. The most important thing is that teachers need to be prepared to use these technologies effectively. Schools can use technology effectively and for the welfare of students, teachers and society, it must be done. Moreover, technology allows students to see the whole world as a resource with themselves being in charge of their destiny.
The traditional relationship between student and teacher is changed with collaborative learning. We cannot exclude technology which helps to develop all these characteristic of the modern classroom. These classrooms help student to enhance their knowledge and to prepare themselves for higher
This principle connects very well to the term digigogy, a new digital pedagogy. Michael Fisher (2013) states, “Where pedagogy is about methods to instruct, digigogy is about those methods, but with a technological frame. Digigogy is…the future of instruction” (para. 1). This modern digital pedagogy places emphasis on the digital tools that help students succeed in the classroom.
Theories that as future educator will need to be understood and explored. Some if not all these theory’s will be used in the classroom. Vygotsky, Piaget, Bruner, and Bloom all set out to establish a foundation for education, whether through building skills such as pre-reading, language, vocabulary, and numeracy. It becomes the educators job to implement theories into the classroom for children's cognitive development. The theorist discussed in this paper, have had made a profound effect on
They are turning around their approach into a focus on creating positive school climate and responsive classroom as part of holistic quality education based on child rights where there is effective teaching and classroom management, thus enhancing students’ learning experiences. The motivational psychology researchers discovered several useful approaches and practices that can be implemented in the classroom for effective learning to take place (Miller, 2012). Teachers are using differentiation to support teaching and learning. Differentiation can vary in pace, activities, resources, teaching and learning styles in an attempt to best meet the needs of individual student. Various teaching strategies such as cooperative learning, active learning, role play and games and pedagogic tools are being integrated in educational theories in meaningful and useful ways to encourage task or learning achievements.
