Students will learn some of the fundamental principles for integrating technology components to differentiate classroom instruction. During the in person portion of the workshop students will learn about and discuss several technology integration methodologies as well as get hands on with a couple of digital tools recommended by the instructor. Following the face-to-face workshop, students will then move online and apply what they learned by creating a digital product utilizing one of the tech tools discussed.
Participants will spend additional time online after the face-to-face session creating a project.
