The number of E-classrooms throughout the state is increasing with all of the statewide initiatives. This hands-on workshop will provide a variety of resources for utilizing projectors, interactive whiteboards and clickers and help teachers in creating a 21st Century Digital Classroom. An E-classroom is one which effectively uses digital images and video, such as UnitedStreaming. Learn effective tools to take students around the world and make news fun. Engage your students with stimulating simulations and learn new and engaging ways of using software. Gain valuable resources for connecting with others using open source software.
