About this session: Britt Gow will be our guest presenter. Digital technologies have provided an enormous range of opportunities for teachers and students to construct learning in different ways. Digital tools allow our students to connect, communicate and collaborate with peers and experts across the globe. You and your students can use free digital tools to create quizzes, word clouds, flashcards and other digital products to share with peers and others. This session will enable you to explore a range of tools to engage and extend student learning. Britt’s resources are collected at http://digitaltoolbox.wikispaces.com
