#LTHEchat 68: What motivates us to use digital tools for learning and teaching?


  1. Q1: What motivates you to use technology in learning and teaching?
  2. The main theme is that we and students use technology in our day to day lives, so why not in learning and teaching. An awareness amongst many of us of entering a space where students are comfortable. Technology can allow us to reach students outside of the classroom, across boundaries of time and space (OMG, who uses a TARDIS???). Many of us admitted to wanting an excuse to tinker and embrace our inner geeks. We were also reminded that technology is not just a default, but a choice out of a range of tools.
