When technology integration is at its best, a student or a teacher does not stop to think that he or she is using a technology tool - it’s second nature. Students are more actively engaged in projects when technology tools are a seamless part of the learning process. In this webinar, "Cool Cat Teacher" Vicki Davis will present ways you can differentiate instruction in your K–12 classroom with technology. You’ll hear about integrating various types of technology—computers, smartphones, tablets, digital cameras, social media platforms, software applications, and the Internet—into daily classroom practices, as well as the management of a school. Vicki will focus on ways that you can use these technologies to transform your teaching and meet the unique needs of every learner in your classroom. She will share a proven framework for successfully differentiating instruction with technology, including the following:
• Tips for making technology use routine and transparent
• Ensuring technology is accessible for the task at hand
• Strategies for using technology to support curricular goals
• Strategies for using technology to help your students effectively reach their goals
Join Vicki for this live, interactive event to learn how to more effectively use technology to advance learning for all of your students. She will field questions from attendees after her presentation.
