In this workshop, we will immerse ourselves in digital technology and examine best practices for their use in the classroom. We will use student artifacts, our source texts and online resources to guide our discussion, experimentation, and collaboration. By the end of our third day, participants will have new resources for classroom use, a better understanding of technology best practices, and have revamped one lesson or unit of study to include technology.

For source material, we will use
