Embedding Technology in the Classroom
Embedding Technology in your classrooms, using individual computers, an interactive whiteboard, iPads or mobile phones.
There are some great online assessment tools out there. OK, they take a little bit of effort on your part, but they can be extremely effective. Here are just a couple of examples for you to take a look at. I have used both of these and they have worked really well in classes.

Technology in Use
Triptico is great for collaborating with other tutors teaching similar subjects as you can share and use what you make with your peers. It provides you with the tools to make professional looking content quickly!
I’ve used this technology mostly on an interactive whiteboard so that I can get my students out of their seats and up participating. They love clicking on the whiteboard or being in charge of controlling it. This tool also helps to generate competition, so its’ great for pair work, small groups etc.
There are just so many tools to choose from – check out the website for full details.
