Job interview question: How do you incorporate technology into teaching?

Students usually like modern technologies. They love laptops, smartphones, or tablets, and they can regularly bring them into the classroom. Instructors could handle this in two ways: either they can ban the technology, ignore it, or they can strive to promote it to enhance the teaching and learning process. 

In my view, banning technology doesn't make much sense. If we ban technology in the classroom, we miss the opportunity to expand the students' abilities to use technology effectively for learning and research purposes. 

I believe that, if we use the technology correctly, it will make our classes interactive and engaging. In fact, technology should be an integral part of a student's life. 

Such devices like smartphones, tablets, and laptops can make learning more interactive. They can be applied to test learner understanding of a concept or even used as a method of providing a pop quiz at the start of course. Also, many applications allow for games, question and answer responses. In language learning situations, students and teachers can share short sentences or words and phrases via text responses.

Smartphones tablets or laptops can be used for recording videos. In many in-class activities, students can create short documentaries, record their speeches, and report new messages. Then, at the end of class, students can present their short documentaries to the entire class.

Technology allows students to use their devices for learning and gives a chance for them to learn from each other. Teachers can also take advantage of social media. Twitter allows students to comment and take notes during class. For example, a teacher can create a hashtag for his or her class, and then encourage students to take notes including the hashtag.

Students can efficiently use writing software both in the classroom and at home. Good writing software, such as Grammarly, Ginger or WhiteSmoke can dramatically improve students' writing skills.

Also, the teacher can use Google Drive to create a shared document, and the whole class can edit that document together at the same time. Finally, teachers can use technology to invite outside guest speakers via video conferencing. 

There are many other ways of using technology in the classroom. I strongly believe that technology can enhance learning, and improve student-teacher interaction.

For a teacher, it is important to find out what technologies are already available in school and use them efficiently.
