Essays in Education


The instructional techniques utilized by educators are largely influenced by their knowledge and understanding of teaching and learning theories and also by their own experiences as a student. Modern classroom technologies have added another dimension to teaching and learning by virtue of its potential for explanatory and exploratory understanding of course content. However, determining how to effectively utilize such tools in one’s practice may elude educators who lack an understanding of electronic pedagogy—the art and science of teaching and learning with technology. This paper will examine factors guiding classroom practices, the need for educators to have more than a cursory understanding of electronic pedagogy, and some suggestions for faculty to use technology in a more pedagogically responsible manner.
