Using Technology to Augment Teaching

This session will explore various uses of technology to augment teaching in a way that is conducive to student-center learning. The focal points of the session will revolve around exploring questions such as: How can we use technology to assess students at an individual level while engaging an entire class of students? How can we find out how to use technology in the classroom? How can we use technology to provide more feedback to students? How can we combine various technologies to do things they weren't designed to do? Experience with technology is not required; however, bringing a laptop, tablet, and/or smart phone will assist with the discussion and experience.
