Technology's Role in the K-12 Classroom
Teachers understand the importance of integrating technology into today's classrooms. However, many teachers still struggle with how they can utilize technology as a partner in the learning process. In order to address this issue, teachers must feel comfortable not only with using technology, but understand how to plan for its effective use.
Teachers will participate in two and half days of hands-on sessions that focus on current and emerging technologies. Designed from a problem-based learning approach, this Institute gives teachers real-world classroom situations that require them to work collaboratively in finding efficient and effective ways for integrating various technologies. Teachers will leave the institute with the basic skills for constructing Podcasts, interactive Web pages, and much more.
