Tim Viands's curator insight, April 8, 6:30 PM

Excerpt:

"technology in the classroom has advanced more in the last 10 years than in the last 100, and educators are working to implement those changes in ways that provide students with learning opportunities that prepare them for real-world jobs."

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, April 8, 8:27 PM

Using technology, like all teaching, is not a matter of figuring out something. It is a matter of having complex conversations about these things as they emerge and enter our classrooms. It is about thinking about what we do and the relationships we are in including those with all technology, discursive and digital.
