First Nearpod Session
Are you using technology as effectively as you could in your classroom? Or perhaps you know you need to try it, but don’t want to include tech just for the sake of it?
This Session will introduce you to TPACK (Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge) and how it can be used to effectively integrate new technology in a classroom setting. We will examine how three important components (Technology, Pedagogy, and Content) intersect to form a new way of learning. We’ll also explore how teachers can create content-rich lessons in a few simple steps and, when appropriate, use technology effectively.
After this session, using technology when planning lessons will be a breeze.
Remember, Tuesday, 21 of August! What do you need? An iPad, iPhone or iPod touch with the Nearpod Student app installed + working Internet connection + PIN (that we will provide you).
