Schools have gone Google. Students bring their own devices to class. Chromebooks and iPads abound. So, how can these powerful tools be incorporated into literacy instruction? Join EMWP for three days of discussion, experimentation, collaboration and hands-on use of digital tools. We will immerse ourselves in current technology, and examine best practices for their use in the classroom. Student artifacts, source texts, and online resources will help to guide us. By the end of our third day, participants will have new literacy resources for classroom use, a better understanding of technology best practices, and have revamped one literacy lesson or unit of study to include technology.
Be sure to bring a laptop, Chromebook, or iPad. If this is a problem or for more information contact: Karen at email@example.com.
