The theme for the convention is Energizing teaching and my talk title is (who would have guessed!) Energizing teaching with technology.
One of my favourite short stories is Tim O'Brien's The Things They Carried, and in the session I will be describing some of the things that I take to class with me (and one I don't!), as well as some of the tools (Blogger, Edmodo, GoAnimate, Soundcloud…) we use and the activities we do (digital storytelling, podcasting…) that help to energize classrooms and the people in them.
Further information, the links and PowerPoint etc., will be posted here on this blog in the next few days.
