Coming up in January - your opportunity to keep up with the technology tools you have heard about or have always wanted to try. We'll provide food, time and helping hands for learning and practicing lots of web 2.0 tools.
Improving your Teaching Through Technology
The Library & Tech Team is planning a series of tech afternoons from January through April.
Classes will meet once a month at FES (likely).
Do you want to spice up your teaching painlessly? Earn PD time as you network with your peers in a laid back technology environment. Are you tech timid? Are you tech savvy? Are you a tech savant?
What we offer:
a tech class built for advanced and novice users and all those in between.
For advanced users we offer some flexibility on when class is done and assignments completed
For Novice users we offer a small group setting with lots of one on one help.
Topics will cover use of tech tools to improve your teaching. Topics: Blogging with your students for authentic writing skills, use of social media such as Twitter to stay up-to-date with your peers, use of Edmodo and Diigo to gather and use info.
