April 2019 General Meeting of the Pi
Susan Bearden, on Technology in Schools
What does high quality education technology use look like, and what structures need to be in place to make that happen? In her talk, Susan will discuss how technology is currently being used in schools, trends for the future, and the digital literacies students need to be successful in college and beyond.
