People Learning Asking Why: Digital Age Teacher Exploration

Back by popular demand!

This is your chance to learn by exploring. Choose a tech tool (or 2 or 3), set a goal, and come to class to get time to experiment, work, create, and design. This is a "supported" work and play (with purpose!) session. Brenda will provide guidance, answer questions, and help you to brainstorm applications for the tools you'd like to use with your students. This is also an opportunity to network with other teachers. You can even come as a team and work together on a project!
