Tech It Up!

Jason Heiser
Jana Baxter

Date: 7/30

Session Time: 1:10-2:40

Location: Cole 119


During this presentation I want to take participants current lesson plans and incorporate simple activities using familiar (technologies familiar to the audience) and emerging technologies (seen during the week). We will be looking at how these technologies can be integrated into high tech and low tech environments. In this session, we’ll be breathing some new life into old technologies like PPT, whiteboards, etc… and look at how teachers and students can use the emerging technologies, like Web 2.0 and others that will be presented, in the classroom to bring a level of interactivity and deepen understanding of course content. Participants will be given templates and guides with ideas for how teachers have and can use them in the classroom.


Participants will be able to:

1. Bring new life to old programs like ppt and interactive whiteboards
2. Generate ideas for implementing new technologies learning at the conference this week

- Links to Marzano
