In the 21st century it has become a critical part of instructor development to learn how to use technology for professional learning as well as incorporate technology into daily teaching practice.
Technology can help us convey concepts more effectively and efficiently. We should never add technology for its own sake.
Tech hardware (projectors, computers, ELMO), software (office or graphic design programs), and mobile apps for smart devices (Sound Builder, Notability), as well as audience response systems (Socrative, Poll Everywhere) can help us to engage students in more active learning.
