Technology Integration Institute: Using Mobile Technology with Students

The Technology Integration Institute offers attendees with the pedagogical foundation and the hands-on experience to effectively integrate mobile technology (tablets, smartphones, etc) in classroom settings. While focusing on specific tools and applications, the institute is designed to show how mobile technology can be incorporated throughout the curriculum to foster 21st Century Skills.

Although the institute has been developed for educators and school personnel at a variety of grade levels, the week will focus on integrating technology in the K-8 classroom and offer authentic examples from a group of practicing elementary and middle level teachers who will serve as facilitators and presenters.
