Workshop Description

This hands-on workshop will provide K-8 teachers with an opportunity to explore ways in which technology tools like tablets, clickers, flip cameras, and digital recorders can be seamlessly integrated into the curriculum. Participants will use these devices to create Wordles, Timetoasts, Concept Maps, YouTube clips, Prezis, blogs, wikis, and Voice Threads. They will design and assess classroom assignments that align with the standards and enhance students’ communication, collaboration, critical thinking and creativity.
