Scope for Teacher Development in Digital Era with Dr. Revathi Viswanathan
Teachers in this digital era have varied teaching experiences in their classrooms. Every session is challenging and educative to both teachers and that is facilitated more by advanced technologies. With the growing trend of using emerging technologies, it has become essential for teachers to update their knowledge of integrating technology in a traditional classroom. It must be stated that universities have to pave way for augmenting the use of new technologies in a classroom by revamping curriculum periodically. In that way it provides opportunity for teachers to develop their teaching and professional skills besides providing exposure to new technological tools to students. In this presentation, the presenter would share her experience of using Wiki and Blogs with her students in teaching written communication. She would further highlight the way those tools had helped her to design materials for learning and also created opportunities for encouraging students to work in online platforms.
