ASSETT researches how teachers use technology in their classrooms to support learning and engagement. One of our goals is to support sustainable educational technology training. We know that teachers are often busy and have little time for extra or ineffective methods, training, or technology. We want to learn from teachers’ practical, classroom-based experiences, discover how they use technology, and then share their tips, lessons, and best practices in our presentations and workshops as well as on our website.
This is a new project for ASSETT for 2014-2015. We are reaching out to possible sponsors to donate technology so that we can put that technology in the hands of trusted teacher-partners for three to six months. Then ASSETT will present their findings for other teachers-in-training as well as teachers working in the field.Follow @wouassett
