When a teacher uses technology to enhance the instructional
elements he or she does the best, that instruction will improve student
learning. Technology is the fuel to your instructional fire. It can accelerate
your instructional strategies. It can take your strong teaching to the next
But if a teacher uses technology to teach the instructional
elements he or she struggles with, student learning can actually suffer. Again,
technology is the fuel. It accelerates the areas where you struggle in ways
that can actually be destructive.
When supporting your instruction with technology, focus on
your strongest areas.
