Enhancing Instruction with Technology Workshop - March 2017

COOL School Technologies facilitated a session titled Using Technology to Differentiate Instruction with Free Tools at Oakland University's Enhancing Instruction with Technology Conference on March 4, 2017. Participants had an opportunity to get hands-on experience with free web tools and discuss how to integrate them into their classroom lessons. "I loved that there were several specific suggestions given with links and examples of how to use them. I felt like I could go back to my classroom and use several of these."
