Topics in Technology for all Teachers
Appropriate for all educators
There are many new technologies that teachers can leverage and integrate in their classrooms. At the end of the day, technology is always a tool, not a silver bullet solution. In this series of workshops, we will explore several topics and how they can be incorporated into classrooms and educational pedagogy. Some topics that we will explore include coding, robotics, artificial intelligence, the maker movement, virtual learning, and other topics. Each session will include hands on learning and real application of the topics, as well as time to work on a individually relevant project for each participant. You will leave each session with resources and an action plan for further exploration.
