Using Technology in Teaching College Religion

Today I am guest presenting in a Seminary course on Teaching Religion in College to a group of PhD and ThD students. My contribution will be an overview of some educational technology tools. Here are the resources we will explore:

Consider the tools we have reviewed during this session. Pick one of them, and comment below. What intrigues you with the possibilities? What concerns you? What ideas do you have for your own teaching?

  1. I like the poll stuff alot with the discussion starter possibilities as well as touching base with the students to see if they understood what has just been covered in class. It gives you some feedback on how to continue to address issues which need clarity.

    Poll Everywhere seems to me very helpful tool in order to get feedback from students. It is also good for getting assessment at the end of the class on student’s understanding of the covered material.
