        Teaching With Technology

        In this professional development video from Getting Results, Dr. John Bransford, professor of education at the University of Washington School of Education, as well as an instructor and a student discuss the value of applying what is learned in the classroom. Bransford and the instructor talk about how students are motivated by using their learning to solve real-world problems. The instructor and one of his students discuss the importance of putting what is learned to use. As seen in this video, the students apply their understanding of mathematical functions to program robots via a graphing calculator. By using technology to solve a problem, students experience how hands-on applications can illustrate concepts.
