The teaching guides in this section will help you answer these questions and more about digital learning with research-based evidence. These teaching guides will help you identify teaching strategies and methods to promote students’ development of critical thinking skills during the digital consumption of information, foster students’ digital communication skills during online social learning opportunities, and develop students’ digital production skills during authentic assessment experiences. In these teaching guides, you will also learn how to utilize educational technology and implement practices that reduce cognitive load and improve student outcomes, such as microlearning through the use of micro-lesson videos.
