Why this Tech Stuff Matters
SPOTLIGHT-4th Session-Our professional experiences as teachers are shaped by so many things each day - the words of colleagues, the attitudes of parents, the directives of administrators, and even the facial expressions of our students. How has technology made the experiences of teachers and students better or worse, and what do these changes remind us about who we are and what we do? Come join Rushton for an exploration of values and possibilities, and bring your humor and your heart - they're required.
