Educational research clearly proves that active learning is superior to passive learning. Big questions you must ask when evaluating any educational technology tool are:
- Does this tool promote active learning?
- Does this tool help students interact with content, with each other, or with you?
- Does this tool have built in formative feedback?
- Does this tool make class time more engaging and interactive?
Use your ‘good teacher’ discretion and make sure any educational technology tool increases student interactivity.
