Program Description

Technology provides much promise for achieving the goal of students becoming successful, efficient, and strategic learners. This is particularly true for struggling learners. Yet technology integration can be quite overwhelming for teachers. Several suggestions for successfully choosing and using technology will be shared. Specific tech tools will also be highlighted and participant sharing of additional tools will be encouraged. (Act 48 Hours: 2)
