This workshop gives teachers and administrators authentic ideas to integrate technology tools into every lesson and activity, no matter the subject!  One major point made in this workshop is the discussion of “the real purpose” for technology, which is to connect and collaborate outside of the classroom. This workshop takes away the fear and burden teachers feel about using new technologies by empowering the students to explore and learn the tools that interest them.


Workshop includes:

  • Exploration of three latest 2.0 tools and real-life examples (Jing, Animoto, Weebly)
  • Actual video clips of classroom implementation
  • Video interviews (short and sweet) of students and teachers discussing their paradigm shift in thinking
  • A feeling of relief, feel-good humor, and a clear direction for 2011-2012
