In this section, you will find materials and resources for teaching about how to successfully integrate technology into the classroom, whether you are conducting a two-hour session or class or can spend a day or two on the topic.
We believe you will find much here from which you can build a set of experiences tailored to class participants for the purpose of exploring technology integration:
