Technology Integration Management

ED 410/411 students have been learning about technology integration into K-12 classrooms this semester. While having the technology can be wonderful for both teaching and learning, it also adds a new dimension to management.

410/411 students were asked to gather information about best practices for managing technology-infused classrooms - and then present this information via digital presentations. As usual, the information presented was very good, across the board.

However, 25% of the grade was based on creativity of presentation - which is sometimes harder for students than gathering the information. Presenting information creatively often pushes students to take a "step outside of the box" - the following presentations are being recognized for their creative presentation of the information. Enjoy!
