Dramatic changes are going to continue to take place in education because of the Web. While change is never easy, but always constant, the Web is providing new opportunities for educators to explore their own interests and passions, build personal learning networks, and have a significant impact on their students, their schools, and their own careers. This exclusive hands-on, FREE workshop will explore these trends and help you, as the “lead learner”, build educational resources for you and your students. A personal laptop or mobile device is highly recommended. Places are strictly limited; catering included. Registration is from 8:30am for a prompt start at 9am.
