Technology plays a major social and educational role in schools today. This HSWOW webinar will show teachers how to capitalize on their students’ love of technology to improve their educational outcomes. An abundance of FREE educational resources and web 2.0 tools will be introduced to help engage students. Participants will learn how to give students technology projects as an alternative to writing assignments, create video stories and animated comic strips.

Please note that the facilitator will be “sharing” her desktop with participants as she goes to various websites and demonstrates online activities. As such, this particular session of HSWOW does not lend itself to phone-only participation.
