Need help getting started with technology integration in your classroom? In a world filled with BYOD, apps and “100 best” lists, it is easy to feel overwhelmed. Join Mike and Garth as we discuss the three essential tools for technology integration. No matter what the device, subject or experience level, you can use these three tools to go from beginner to teacher-leader. GoogleDocs, Skype and student-created blogs are the essential technology tools needed to create your classroom window-to-the-world. Just three tools, that’s it! We promise no lists, rapid fire explanations or a myriad of downloads. We will discuss the philosophy and practicality of each tool through real-world examples. Actual teachers, actual success stories and a common sense approach to technology will allow you to leave this session ready to tackle technology in the new school year.
