Techno-pedagogy underlies a reflection or opportune relation between pedagogy and technology. The term refers to (teaching) practices that consider:
- both pedagogical (teaching and learning methods, motivation, the development of students’ skills), and
- technological aspects (using computers, the Internet, interactive whiteboards, etc.).
Within this perspective, the technological resources targeted and used by teachers are very helpful in supporting active teaching methods. Technological Resources are used for learning purposes. Technology, therefore, is considered to support active teaching methods, and not as an end in itself.
The common goal of those innovations is to improve the quality of the students’ learning.
