Technology in YOUR School

on Wednesday, 27 August 2014. Posted in Events and Conferences

Want to learn how to integrate technology into your classroom? Join us for "Technology in YOUR School" on September 26!

How can you use technology to do real work for real audiences? How do you discover rather than deliver a curriculum with technology? How can you transfer the power to your students? How can you talk to strangers in a good way, and how can you and your students become master learners by using technology? Will Richardson discusses these issues in his book, Why School? How Education Must Change When Learning and Information Are Everywhere. This seminar will share examples of how technology can be used to answer these questions. Also, see a 3D printer in action and try on a pair of Google Glasses!
