Do you find it challenging to figure out how to build digital skills into the flow of your class? You are not alone! This workshop will cover tools that teachers and advisors can use for common instructional and assessment activities. You will explore the EdTech Integration Strategy Toolkit*, which is designed to help you find strategies, resources, and activities to support meaningful EdTech integration and digital skill development.
After completing this workshop, you will develop a plan that builds on the routines and tools you already use by considering new tools in the Toolkit to implement according to your learners’ interests and needs.
If you have sources or practices to recommend, please come ready to share.

This professional development activity/course is designed for:
Part 1: Workshop
During the synchronous webinar, you will tour the EdTech Strategy Toolkit and have time to dig into it to find a routine and tool that fits in with your work with students. We will discuss ways to manage groups with a range of computer skills and how incorporating digital skill routines can help. Working with the other participants, you will have time during the session to explore the resources and to begin to develop a plan for your own next steps.
Part 2: Applying your Learning
After the workshop, you will finish your draft plan with the support of your colleagues. The facilitator will be available to work directly with you and/or your program colleagues.
