Using Technology in the Classroom with NCA’s eTools
The ever-expanding software universe provides a variety of programs designed for use in the classroom, as well as others that were intended for different purposes, but which can be readily adapted to add value in educational settings. However, the time needed to stay current on all of the options, and to develop classroom applications, is more than most people can devote to the technical side of teaching.
In an effort to help NCA members take advantage of technical tools now on the market, the Educational Policies Board has introduced a new section to the Virtual Faculty Lounge. eTools is an essay series designed to provide practical advice for Communication instructors on how to integrate technology into the classroom. The series currently covers the following:
Livebinders – Shannon VanHorn, Valley City State University
Instagram – Danielle Stern, Christopher Newport University
Padlet – Kimberly M. Weismann, Williston State College
Google Docs – Jonna Ziniel, Valley City State University
