Technology + Innovation = Technovating in Schools
Schools and districts often use Title I funds to increase access to technology, yet the professional development rarely goes beyond teaching how to use tech devices as expensive pencils. The digital revolution offers opportunities to transform the way we educate others. Teachers and instructional leaders can benefit from this session by learning how to engage and empower students and faculty as well as reach community members. "Technovating" in the classroom occurs when teachers intentionally plan innovative lessons with technology to reach students. When educators technovate they go public with student learning, remix content and strategies to fit the needs of students, and create academic digital tattoos. Attendees will engage in activities that capitalize on creativity, sharing, and empowerment using tech tools and social media for educators and students.
