To ensure they are engaged and motivated learners, it is important that our classrooms reflect this change and understand the full educational potential of new technologies.

Good pedagogy is about teaching strategies that achieve positive learning outcomes.
It requires you to fully understand your students, and how they learn best.
To do that, you need to identify the best ways of determining what students have learned.
When you give your students opportunities to learn in ways that suit them, you are showing an understanding of their needs, interests and strengths.
There may be a few things you need to learn or change to make this happen.
The time you invest in making these changes is extremely important to student learning outcomes.
