As part of our work in EETT this year we want to help you design and deliver lesson plans that encourage deep learning while maximizing the transformative potential that 21st Century tools can bring. To that end we have invited three technology using educators to share the tips and techniques they use in their classrooms via Elluminate. Please mark your calendars now to attend!
