Technology Enhanced Projects
Your school has a computer lab
where your students have been working on different technology
applications. Time is limited and you would like to be able to link
these activities to your curriculum. But how exactly can technology
be used to accomplish curriculum goals? What are the different
technology solutions available? In the span of 90 minutes, you are
going to grapple with these questions and more.

your curriculum, you need to develop a thorough understanding of the
different possibilities open to you as you use technology to enhance the
curriculum. One way for you to get there is to explore different
