Objective 1:
Participants will be able to apply educational theory to best utlize technology for teaching

Objective 2:
Participants will be able to employ specific learning technologies to support education in the classroom or clinical setting

Objective 3:
Participants will be able to discuss challenges in using technology

Participants will be introduced to principles of educational theory underlying the rationale for incorporating new learning technologies into their teaching. Next, participants will be divided into small groups to rotate through a series of stations. At each station a workshop leader will introduce a learning technology and will then demonstrate how they use that particular tool to teach in their setting. Demonstrations will include step-by-step instructions so that anyone can start using the technique immediately. The categories of tools to be discussed include: Video creating tools, Screensharing technologies which allow teachers to share their video screen, Social media tools that allow for the sharing and dissemination of pictures, or videos, Productivity tools that allow educators to centralize their teaching resources for easy future access. We will offer the opportunity for educators to network with like-minded colleagues to collaborate and share learning technology resources.
