Using Technology to Increase Student-Teacher Interaction

George Drops.

Technology, when used properly, can both improve face-to-face interaction and increase student learning. PowerPoint software is usually used by both teachers and students to deliver a presentation without much interaction between the two except for listening to lectures and reports. This session will identify the four levels of interaction using PowerPoint presentations and demonstrate how to shift from the transfer of knowledge by the instructor to the construction of new knowledge by students.
