In this module, participants will examine their current stage of development in the transformation to 21st Century classroom and their own change process while gathering ideas for implementing new technology strategies into current pedagogy. This module, which is geared toward novice technology users, will include activities to help participants find new tools to bring engaging multimedia lessons to their students that met them were they are, as well as help build a personal learning network to provide support and inspiration for moving forward.
