Managing the Digital Classroom

This is my presentation slide deck with all the links to the materials and resources from my plenary at King Saud University. The presentation looked at how we can resist the changes technology is forcing into the classroom or how we can welcome them, adapt our teaching style to them and make technology a positive forse for change.
