In this article I offer advice to help you decide which curriculum-based instructional activities to attempt to integrate into classrooms, with which students and when to do so. In making these practical suggestions, I am referring more to what is than what could be. Deciding which uses of education technologies are most worth the additional time, effort and expense doesn’t have to be guesswork. By weighing the learning outcome probabilities of new technology-based strategies against the success of existing pedagogical techniques we can decide, on a case-by-case basis, whether each new learning activity possibility is worth it.
