Leveraging digital tools to build educative curricula for teachers: two promising approaches

Leveraging digital tools to build educative curricula for teachers: two promising approaches Well-designed curriculum materials include educative components that help teachers effectively plan, implement, and adapt activities for diverse learners. Digital materials offer several affordances over print materials in the format, fit, and flexibility of the educative information provided to teachers, as well as the ability of the materials to track and follow-up on teacher behaviors. Drawing on current research and development projects, this paper describes two promising approaches that take advantage of these digital affordances to enhance the educative experience for teachers. The first approach, called the expansion approach, allows nearly limitless expansion of the amount, type, and nature of educative resources offered to teachers as they use a curriculum. The second approach, called the feedback approach, provides customized educative feedback based on teacher needs and behaviors while using a curriculum. These approaches have implications for future curriculum design and research. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png ZDM Springer Journals
