Moving Past the Digital Worksheet: Strategies to Move Your Technology Integration Forward
October 27 @ 8:30 am - 12:00 pm$35
Our districts and schools have invested incredible time and money into the amount of technology students have access to. With this investment comes the search for the best practices to help move teachers past simply digitizing worksheets. How can we help our teachers make this shift forward? Teachers, coaches, and administrators – join us as we examine the most commonly used evaluation models SAMR, TPACK, and the 4 Shifts Protocol and their impact on lesson design.
Technology has the power to create real change in student learning; it is our job as leaders to help our educators know the best practices to make that change happen!
