Suzanne Ensmann’s Technology Resource-Kit
Purpose: To promote meaningful learning, teaching, and communication
To the right, you'll find up-to-date conversations & teaching resources to engage students in civics, 21st Century Skills, and interactive lessons.-->
Below, you'll find resources organized as to how you might use them in education, as well as usability, hardware, and conference links.
And, last but not least, at the very bottom, you'll find all my current conversations happening with research and technology in education!
Enjoy and let me know how this page works for you and how you apply these technologies!
