Digital Practice - Enhancing Brightspace

Digital Practices

EdTech Home » Digital Practices

Digital practices in educational technology encompass a broad range of tools, methodologies, and pedagogical strategies designed to enhance teaching and learning experiences. This includes the integration of our learning management systems (LMS / Brightspace) for course organization and communication, the use of educational apps and platforms (i.e. Padlet, H5P, etc.) to support interactive learning, and the adoption of digital resources such as e-books, online simulations, and educational games. Collaborative tools, like shared document platforms, virtual classrooms, and discussion forums, facilitate interaction and cooperation among students and between students and instructors. The shift towards digital practices in education aims to increase accessibility, engagement, and efficiency in the learning process, preparing students for the increasingly digital world.
