“Designing Technology for Teachers & Learners”

This is the last of our inaugural series before the summer, so don't miss out!

This Salon will look at the design of specific tools that can be used in the classroom (both higher education and K-12) to foster learning and enrich communication. This event is an excellent opportunity to learn about the cutting-edge technology that is entering classrooms while having an open discussion about the role that this technology will play in education.
