The teacher technology toolbox: the essential guide

Abstract of talk by Gavin Dudeney on Thursday April 6th

When integrating Educational Technology (EdTech) into teaching, is it the hardware, software and tools which are important, or the overarching skills and approaches which make the difference? In this workshop we will work together to design the essential Technology Toolbox, and fill it with the most useful elements for today’s busy teacher.
