Awareness and Strategy Necessary for Technology Success

September 12, 2017 @ 12pm- 1pm EDT

This Structured Conversation presents considerations for institutions who find themselves considering or questioning the adoption of educational technology to advance practices. Four main points are offered for reflection and exemplified in a flow chart for decision making. Related resources will also be shared and discussed.
As a result of participating in this structured conversation, participants will be able to:
  • Identify education technology as a tool not a solution
  • List considerations for adopting educational technology
  • Identify information resources for educational technology
