Morning session:


As our culture evolves to integrate technology into ever-expanding areas of our lives, there are social implications that are fundamentally shifting the learning experiences of our students.

This interactive session explores how teachers can embrace tech tools to engage and personalize the learning experience for all types of learners and shows how utilizing these tools can actually free up time for the teacher to create an environment where learning takes center stage. By leveraging the right tools and rethinking traditional lesson design, technology can provide a safe learning space for all students — whether that individual is the shy, quiet-type who is never the first to raise her hand or the outgoing, verbal-type who is eager to chime in with a response.


Afternoon session:


Technology has blended the boundaries of the authorship and publication process for digital sources. The ethical, appropriate use of digital information is not intuitive for students but rather a skill set which requires deliberate pedagogy.  This presentation will outline ways for librarians and technology professionals to work together in order to help teachers and students use information effectively for all information needs.



Also included in this retreat will be participant driven conversations and even a little sand-in-your-toes downtime since this location is directly on the beach just outside of Annapolis.
