Learning with Technology!



We recognize technology as a tool...a powerful one!  Questions surrounding technology in education have changed. No longer can we ask...how do we learn technology? Instead we need to focus on: 
how do we learn WITH technology? and, 
how can technology TRANSFORM teaching & learning?
