What I Know About These Technical Things

What I know now about media & technology in Education…

PowerPoint presentations come to mind right away; PowerPoint is an excellent companion to an oral presentation. Also, the use of email and sites such as Omnivox (CEGEP) and Minerva are an excellent way to inform students.

Recently, the use of TurningPoint has come into play in one of my McGill classes.
