This website was created by faculty and students in the Instructional Psychology and Technology department at Brigham Young University. As the name suggests, we are focused on better understanding teaching through the lenses of psychology and technology.
For many years, our department has been instructing preservice elementary and secondary education teachers on how to use technology in their classrooms. We wanted to create a website that our students could turn to if they needed help with technology at any point in their careers. As we worked to better serve their needs, we realized that many others would appreciate the same resource. Mozilla Open Badges has allowed us to not only offer our free tutorials in one place, but also accredit those individuals throughout the world who learn the technologies we teach.
