Using An Instructional Tool for My Teaching

In this module, several online tools are introduced for facilitating your instruction. Pick one of these tools and describe how you can use it for your teaching practice. You need to specify your subject area and grade level. Please be as detailed as possible so that others can duplicate your instructional idea.

Make your initial posts before 11:59 p.m. U.S. EST/EDT on Day 5 of this module. After making your initial postings, review at least two of your classmates’ postings and reply to their threads. Complete your replies before 11:59 p.m. U.S. EST/EDT on the next Monday.

Discussion postings should always be thoughtful and courteous and include some references or direct evidence from the module’s content, readings, or assignments to support your statements. In order to ensure that postings are appropriate in length and substance, please limit your initial postings to 100 – 200 words and each of your responses to 25 – 50 words.
