“One of the biggest challenges for 21st Century educators is how to teach this new generation of students, who know more about technology than we do. It also has to do with the proliferation of new apps that can be used in the classroom, appearing every other month. In this workshop we are going to discuss about how to use technology in the classroom based on our teaching needs, and looking towards developing student’s talents, to prepare them for the various jobs that statistically, they are going to fulfill.”
