    Benefits of Effective Infusion of Instructional Technology

    Benefits of Effective Infusion of Instructional Technology

    Effective infusion of technology benefits all students. Technology allows educators to meet the needs of all students no matter what the students' preferred learning modality. Visual, auditory, and second language learners can benefit from programs like EdPuzzle, YouTube, Discovery Education, Quizlet, GAFE, and Flocabulary that use videos to enhance the learning process. Tactile learners can use Google Draw to create pictorial demonstrations of proof of mastering content. ELL students benefit a great deal from any technology that immerses them in the new language they are trying to learn. The more ways they hear, see, and use new language the better chance they will have in learning to comprehend that language. Quizlet, Quizziz, Kahoot, and Socrative bring in the competitive component. Let's face it, we are all competitive in one way or another.
