Kicking Pails and Lighting Fires- Using Technology to Light Fires of Learning within Students

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

William Butler Yeats once said, "Education is not the filling of a pail, it's the lighting of a fire". As teachers we sometimes forget that we have the ability to spark a desire inside of students and we get overwhelmed with all the resources available. It's time to get out of the mind-frame of just filling up their pails, that can only hold so much, and focus on lighting fires that can ignite a nation of future learners. With Google Suite, multiple apps and programs, you will leave with a variety of resources to implement in your classroom! We will look at many ways to incorporate technology while also motivating students and helping them take control of their own learning. Are you ready to spark your teaching and your students?
