Jennifer Womble on Edtech Trends from FETC Speaker Submissions
More than Cool: FETC's Discussions on EdTech with Leading Educators
EdTech is about engaging today's students, who have grown up in the modern world of information technology. This can be challenging for educators, who need to keep up-to-date about technology integration skills, resource information, differentiated instructional strategies, and curriculum ideas for the modern classroom. Each year, FETC receives over 1,500 proposals from educators on what they feel is important for their colleagues to know. Last year, games, 3D Printing, platforms, and professional development were all hot topics. What did FETC learn this year? Jennifer Womble will discuss what seems to be hot this year, and will be listening to additional feedback from attendees on what they are most interested in learning.
