Management Strategies

ED 410/411 students have been gathering information and learning about strategies for managing classroom technologies. They presented their findings in a digital format of their choice. Grades were based on content, mode of presentation and creativity. Everyone did a super job on content and mode. Creativity - is a little harder. I think you will enjoy the following, for their creative slant.
