EdTech Playground Sessions for 2023-2024

I am excited to once again be presenting an "EdTech Playground" for the Teacher Innovation Network this year! Last year my session was about "Mote for Multilingual Learners". This year I will be doing a session about accessibility.

The great things about the EdTech Playgrounds are:
  • They are FREE!
  • They are streamed live
  • The recordings can be viewed later
  • They are open to anyone
See below for the full list of EdTech Playground sessions for this year, as well as details on how to register. I look forward to learning with you!

💡 About the EdTech Playgrounds

The "EdTech Playgrounds" are hosted by the Teacher Innovation Network, and are described as follows:

What's an EdTech Playground?

A chance to discover fresh EdTech tools and how to choose the right one for your classroom. 

It can be challenging to determine which EdTech tools are right for your classroom. At each EdTech Playground, fellow educators and industry leaders will share their top tips for using EdTech in the classroom. 

You'll then have an opportunity to play with and explore the tools in self-selected breakout rooms. If you're new to a tool, you'll receive targeted support to help get you started. Experienced users will collaborate around a shared project or challenge and/or learn advanced tips for using the tool. 

Then we come back together to share and connect!
