With so much technology available, how does a teacher know what will work in the classroom? For educators just getting their feet wet with technology integration to those currently using technology in the classroom, presenter Eric Clark will explore exciting 21st century tech tools that will increase student engagement and bring life into the classroom.
One-to-one computing, BYOD (Bring Your Own Device), Smart Boards and other improvements have revolutionized the technology environment in many North American classrooms, yet many educators have lagged behind in incorporating that technology into their instruction. Many classrooms are not much different than they were 20 years ago except PowerPoint slides have replaced transparencies and papers are now submitted on computers. But the potential is so much greater!
In this 90-minute webinar, Eric Clark will draw upon his experience as a media teacher, media entrepreneur, administrator and master trainer to help teachers sort through tools that they might find useful in their classrooms – while opening their minds to other ways to harness technology.
To augment the PowerPoint™ presentation and activities, each participant will receive a (PDF) resource packet of the presentation with ideas, reproducible forms, activities and other suggested resources.
