Wondering where you belong on the spectrum between a technophobe and technophile? Curious as to how this affects your teaching? More tech-savvy generations of learners are entering our classrooms bringing not only their rich cultural contexts, but also new preferences of learning and engaging both with each other, and their educators. However, incorporating ed-tech strategies effectively into teaching can seem daunting to many educators.

This webinar will present theoretical considerations for developing an educator’s digital capabilities. We will also review examples of ed-tech professional development models to support and empower educators to successfully implement technology-enhanced teaching practices. Our experience shows that the development of digital capabilities in educators is highly dependent upon empowering, developing and enhancing the educators’ mindset.
