Area Teachers Learn Advancements in Education Technology
By Erin Orgeman
NOV. 5, 2007--As technology becomes prevalent in teaching and learning as well as everyday lives, passing that knowledge onto future teachers becomes a priority in the University of Wisconsin-River Falls College of Education and Professional.
Toward that aim, more than 100 K-12 teachers from Ellsworth, River Falls, St. Croix Central, Hudson, Somerset, Osceola, Prescott and other schools will spend a day on the University of Wisconsin- River Falls campus learning innovative ways to integrate technology into the classroom at an all-day workshop Nov. 10 in the Wyman Education Building.
Presentations are going to be given by teachers who have extensive knowledge in specific programs including: Inspiration, Kidspiration, SMART Board, PhotoShop, iMovie, as well as Microsoft Word, PowerPoint and Excel. There also will be presentations led by student members of UWRF's Technology Leadership Cadre (TLC).
The focus of this workshop is to help teachers use technology as well as help educate them on how to make it part of their students' lives, says Mary Manke, assistant dean of the College of Education and Professional Studies. "This technology may take some time to learn, but it will allow students to learn in a way never thought possible."
