Technology offers educators effective ways to reach different types of learners and assess student understanding through multiple means. It also enhances the relationship between teacher and student. When technology is effectively integrated into subject areas, teachers grow into roles of adviser, content expert, and coach. Technology helps make teaching and learning more meaningful and fun. This session will provide educators an opportunity to view instructional strategies of old followed by a redesigned approach to reach 21st Century learners. The presenters will model commonly used instructional strategies followed by technology enhanced strategies using Web 2.0 tools that will motivate and engage all learners. To increase achievement, decrease drop-out rates, and ensure all students are college and career-ready, technology is an essential component to instruction.
