TOPIC 2: TECHNOLOGY IN THE CLASSROOM

Question 1: Knowing how to use computers is not the same as knowing how to teach with computers. Some studies have proved that teachers are still in need of a portfolio of technology-based resources. Can you give any examples that you have used with your students?
