Welcome to Building an EdTech Strategy Toolkit! This course was developed by the EdTech Center@World Education in partnership with the Outreach and Technical Assistance Network (OTAN) and is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 4.0 (CC-BY-NC-SA) International License.
Since the pandemic in 2020, instructors have immersed themselves in a variety of educational technology tools to support remote instruction. As we settle back into more consistent models for instruction and learning, this BEST course is designed to walk instructors through a thoughtful process of designing strategic, sustainable instructional routines that leverage educational technology and are centered around the factors that most impact their learners.
This orientation will describe OTAN's BEST course which helps teachers develop a strategic approach to designing and implementing technology based routines for their learners.
The course facilitators will discuss the course in detail including how to access the course, timelines, how the content is sectioned, and what is expected of participants. Questions will be answered and registration for the course will be discussed.
