Technology Is Our Friend! Using Technology to Make Connections In & Beyond the Classroom™

Technology is our friend, not our foe. The possibilities now with technology are endless – students and educators now have the opportunities to develop real and meaningful relationships with each other and with students from all over the world.  These relationships have the power to defy the barriers of age, race, economics and geography.  The goal of this session is to inspire and encourage teachers and administrators to engage their students in classroom and global collaborative projects, using Information and Communication Technologies such as web pages, wikis, blogs, collaborative classroom space, web casts, video conferencing and email.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Establish beneficial and inspirational connections for students and teachers with each and other students from all over the world.
