Put your "whole self in" and "turn yourself around" by exploring exciting new emerging technologies! In addition, learn about the unintended and spontaneous uses of mobile devices with the powerful applications that are here today and coming tomorrow. Teachers, administrators, and coaches need to continue their professional development to understand what technologies are available to support teaching and learning. Understanding the current and future trends plays a big role in their professional growth and leadership in their school and district. In addition, they also should be able to support a digital-age learning culture to ensure that all teachers are on-board with the importance of finding the best technologies and resources for student learning. Technologies presented in the 2016 NMC Horizon Report K-12 will be used as well as a quick overview of the main points of this useful report. This session is a MUST for technology directors and coordinators!
