Digital Teaching Professional Framework

This module covers the DTPF component - B1a : Teaching and learning resources

  • Visualise and explain new concepts in a motivating and engaging way using digital technologies e.g. by using animations or videos.
  • Use motivating and engaging activities (e.g. games and quizzes) in digital learning environments.
  • Put learners' active uses of digital technologies central to the teaching process.
  • Allow learners actively to engage with subject matter using digital technologies, e.g. using different senses, manipulating virtual objects, varying the problem set up to enquire into its structure, etc.
  • Promote active learning in a given learning context or for a specific learning objective using appropriate digital technologies.
  • Reflect on how suitable the different digital technologies used are in increasing learners' active learning, and to adapt strategies and choices accordingly.
