How do we assist K-12 students in developing information literacy? How do students benefit from the use of online technology tools?

This workshop will help you reflect on the roles various online tools or applications may play in the teaching process and how you can better engage students in your classroom with them. You will brainstorm, share and experiment with some of the tools potentially applicable in today's schools. In addition, you will be exposed to theories and research about educational technology and teachers' perceptions about it.
