Digital Technology Intervention for Instructional Spaces

Today's students are immersed in using technology as part of instruction and the learning process and as a result methods for instruction and learning are changing. Interaction and collaboration are displacing the traditional lecture model. Active Learning, 1:1, and BYOD programs create a new world of possibilities for teachers and students, while also bringing a flood of new technologies into the classroom. This presentation will discuss the current trends and strategies for facilitating classroom collaboration. With this knowledge, you will be able to plan for collaboration in the design phase and provide a seamlessly integrated learning environment for users.
