Peter Pappas, adjunct instructor with the School of Education, sees himself as a designer of learning experiences. He identifies instructional goals and then searches for tools that will help him meet those goals. He and his students have collaborated to produce some of the most downloaded history books on iTunes in addition to many blogs and a mobile app.
What’s the least amount of technology you can use to get the job done? I think the transformative part of technology is getting it in the hands of the students so they can research and create and produce in ways that you couldn’t do without it.
