Connecticut Educational Technology Conference

Renee Hobbs is a featured speaker at the Connecticut Educators Computer Conference on October 26, 2015 at the Mohegan Sun Resort. She'll be speaking about "Why Teacher Motivations for Digital Learning Matters." 

What flavor of digital literacy do you like best? Today, there are a lot of flavors to choose from. In this session, we'll explore terms like connected learning, blended learning, technology integration, media literacy, information literacy and web literacy and use the Digital Learning Motivations Profile to recognize the variety of motives that lead educators to teach with and about media and technology. Discover how educators' motivation shapes their strategies and choices in the classroom. Improve your professional development training skills by understanding how educators' differing motivations shape their instructional practices with media and technology.
