Educational Technology Resources and Instructor Toolkit
In education, there has been much discussion around twenty-first-century skills, skills that are the foundation for student learning in any discipline. Frequently categorized as communication, collaboration, critical thinking, creativity and research, these are considered foundational skills students need to function in society, for jobs, continued education, and citizenship. Within each of these categories, there is a vast landscape of educational online tools available. This toolkit is categorized into different activities that you may want to undertake with your students ranging from communication to sharing material to online lectures. Each category contains our recommendations for the tools to use, with a description of the tool, a text-based user guide as well as instructional videos. Explore the toolkit.
