Down-to-earth advice for busy teachers on using technology to save time and improve instruction.

Computers can help teachers accomplish many of their tasks more efficiently and effectively, but how can a time-strapped teacher determine which pieces of technology are likely to be most helpful? This easy-to-read book offers useful guidance for real-world situations. Organized around specific instructional goals (improving student writing, promoting collaborative learning) and commonly encountered tasks (communicating with students between class, distributing course materials), the book shows teachers at all instructional levels when and how technology can help them meet everyday challenges.

Written in an anecdotal, non-technical style, the book and its accompanying CD-ROM cover how to use technology to:

communicate with students

distribute course materials

promote collaborative learning

learn through experience

clarify course objectives

improve student writing

develop student research skills

use assessment and feedback

collect course materials

identify plagiarism

and more

Teachers looking for tools to help them work better and more quickly will welcome this invaluable guide to the technology that will expedite their search.

William Clyde teaches finance and is dean of academic technology, and Andrew Delohery teaches English composition and is director of The Learning Center, both at Quinnipiac University.

“I know of no other book that approaches this subject this way. The idea of having a reference work that is organized by routine instructional needs and cross-referenced with technological interventions is unique.”—Ed Klonoski, Connecticut Distance Learning Consortium


“This is a practical manual that can give traditional instructors in all disciplines 43 specific ways to perform course tasks more effectively with the technology that is currently available. The directions are clear and sequential.”—Frank Christ, professor emeritus, California State University, Long Beach, and visiting scholar, University of Arizona
