Technology in Action - Empowered Learner

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In this session, educators will learn how students can leverage technology to take an active role in choosing, achieving and demonstrating their learning. Students can become empowered learners in selecting technology tools from a wide choice to set goals, develop strategies to achieve them, and reflect on the learning process. Educators do not need to be technology “wizards” for this to be successful. Students can be empowered to be the expert in the room with these resources.
