ISTE’s NETS for Students states “Students [should] use digital media and environments to communicate and work collaboratively, including at a distance, to support individual learning and contribute to the learning of others. [They should] interact, collaborate, and publish with peers, experts, or others employing a variety of digital environments and media.” Come explore how communication and collaboration tools across K-12 content areas can help transform learning. Learn how you can help your students and colleagues connect with content, with each other, and with others outside the classroom in a meaningful way.
Session attendees will explore, interact with, and create technology resources for inquiry, research, networking, collaboration, creation, presentation, publication, and reflection.
