What is that one technological tool that you remember from your school days? Something that your teachers used to instruct, to teach? Books, yes! And, books are still around. A blackboard, most probably! Or, in some instances (if your school had the necessary facility), an overhead projector.
Nowadays, however, these tools, which once adorned our classrooms, have taken a back seat. They have been almost replaced by newer technology. The classrooms of today are definitely different from the ones we studied in.
Are we, as teachers, ready to teach in such classrooms? Are we equipped sufficiently? This course, while taking you on a journey of educational technology, intends to build a foundation of educational technology to get you ready for the techno-savvy classrooms of today.
