In this course, participants will learn to use a variety of technology tools to enhance instruction. Uses for these technologies will be introduced with best practices in mind (curriculum enhancement, differentiated instruction, assessment), and not "technology for technology's sake." In addition, participants will be given time to work on creating lessons, labs, assessments, and resources for use in their classrooms. Participants will share and reflect upon their work at the last meeting. Participants should bring a flash drive for saving work.
