Blending Technologies - Let the Learning Begin! -- Carolyn Fruin
Educational technology is an outdated word for today’s students. If we watch how kids communicate, listen to music, apply for jobs, even manage their time, we see less and less paper and more handheld devices than ever before. It never has not existed to them. We need to take advantage of this constant stream of information and take advantage of it when building our classroom curriculum. Learn how to transform your classroom into an active learning environment. Experience how you can blend multiple technologies into an easy-to-manage lesson where students collaborate and instructors facilitate.
