Title

Teaching, and Technology, and Theory, Oh My!: Teaching with Technology for Learning's Sake

Abstract

Using technology in teaching simply because technology exists makes little sense. On the contrary, writing teachers should use technology as tools for fostering effective teaching and successful learning by grounding that use in practical application and theory. Considering this, the presenters focus on practical ways of using technology, such as word auto-correct, virtual sticky notes, and text-messaging, to teach writing. The goal is to place technology in context as a means to an end and not an end in itself.
