Ed Techies Network
Participants will explore ways to apply technology to curriculum in meaningful ways in service of student-centered learning. Together, we will discuss our experiences with technology in the classroom and support each other in figuring out what learning challenges we can address by drawing on technological applications, websites, social media, games, and more. We will learn about new tools and apps and how they can be used across grades and subjects. Regardless of whether you are brand new to using technology in the classroom and want to learn, or whether you are an experienced pro who wants to grow their personal learning network and collaborate with educators at other schools, this is the home for your ed tech exploration! All skill levels are welcome.
This network is aimed at day school classroom educators. This Network is also open to educators in the New Jersey and Connecticut (the Tri-State area).
