Abstract

In the age of over three million apps available in multiple app stores, and with more added every day, we often reach to technology to assist us with everything from creating our grocery lists to paying our bills. Similarly, we look to technology to improve the classroom experience for both teachers and students. However, we need to be careful to use the right tool for the job, rather than finding a job for the tool. So, how do we do that? By focusing our courses with the Five Gears for Activating Learning, we can integrate technology tools only if they assist in supporting student success and achieving student learning outcomes.
