Technology Open Institutes (Watch for one near you!)
CWP’s Technology Open Institutes are true hands-on experiences—“make and take” sessions where teachers are introduced to new ways to use technology in the classroom, have the opportunity to explore and use it themselves, and get ready to use it with their students. No computer experience necessary! If teachers in your district or building are looking for ways to use technology in the classroom to enhance teaching and learning, contact Lavon Jonson (firstname.lastname@example.org), Kathy Laubon (email@example.com), or Lynn Chrenka (firstname.lastname@example.org).
