7 Habits Of Highly Effective Teachers Who Use Technology



In most ways, teachers that use technology in the classroom aren’t much different than those that don’t.

Any teacher worth their salt assesses, and then revises planned instruction based on data from those assessments.

They manage their classroom in a way that works for them, create a positive learning environment, and (great teachers especially) collaborate with a variety of stakeholders to make sure every humanly possible attempt is made to meet all students need.

But using technology in the classroom–and using it effectively–might require some slight adjustments on the part of the teacher to sustain the effort, creative problem-solving, and innovation required to actually improve learning through the use of technology. (And great administrators, too.)

In this context,¬†Always Prepped recently released the following infographic that clarifies some of the habits highly-effective users of technology might possess. (We especially like 1, 3, and 4.)¬†Would love to hear your thoughts on any you think they might’ve missed on twitter on facebook.

    Great post about technology in the classroom, but what about outside of the classroom? How can teachers effectively distribute class material through technology as homework or a class project? In this sense, I believe that teachers need to think more than solely two steps ahead. Technology, can and will, exceed outside of the classroom and all teachers need to be prepared for the movement. How can we, as society, then encourage our educators to change and adapt to the new learning ecosystem?

    This is a good article, which depicts several concepts about teachers using technology in the classroom. Tell me, just what does “using technology in the classroom” really mean?

    I have been using technology in the classroom for the past ten years, with great success I might add. Now I am beginning to hear that what I have been doing is not classified in the modern-day sense of technology in the classroom.

    Thanks for the enlightenment.
