Tools to Support Your Classroom Practice

Craig Nicholls, Melbourne Girls Grammar

Technology is often portrayed as a great time saver, but as you spend hours at your computer it can feel the opposite. This session aims to address this imbalance and look at how technology can save you time as a History teacher. In this workshop, we will investigate three different scenarios you deal with in your role and look at how technology can make your life easier. We will be looking at various tools available and the pedagogy behind using them in your practice.
