With widely disparate access to technology educators can be at a loss to KNOW which technologies to harness. With the goal of maximizing student engagement and learning, we will explore a variety of available technologies and assess their Learn to harness the AVAILABLE technology to the best use regardless of limitations. Explore ways and means to bridge technology gaps while providing meaningful experiences with 21C Skills.

responsibly participate in the digital world. Educators:
a. Create experiences for learners to make positive, socially
responsible contributions and exhibit empathetic behavior
online that build relationships and community.
b. Establish a learning culture that promotes curiosity and critical
examination of online resources and fosters digital literacy and
media fluency.
c. Mentor students in the safe, legal and ethical practices with
digital tools and the protection of intellectual rights and property.
d. Model and promote management of personal data and digital
identity and protect student data privacy.
