Strand
Digital Learning and Innovative Practices
Audience
Instructional Coaches, Library and Media Specialists, Teachers

Participants will learn tips and tricks for teaching primary students the concept of technology. Resources will also be shared and hands-on practice will be provided.

This session would be applicable to any teachers lacking experience with primary students or those experienced primary teachers who fear using technology with their littles.

I will be using techniques learned from my primary professionals in my district, numerous online resources, as well as a hands-on experience of how a primary class may look taught by myself.

When she is not working on her computer, she can be found chauffeuring around her 10 and 13-year-old kiddos to swimming, dance, and gymnastics. Carolyn is also the wife of a teacher.
