The workshop is an opportunity for technology leaders, educators, and administrators to see and experience the new developments in technology and how they are shaping the classroom. Specific emphasis will be on the STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics), integrating technology into all classrooms, and how technology can aid the collaboration process.

About the Presentation:
The technological advances of the past two decades have astounded all of us -- especially those of us over 40 years of age. But perhaps, having a greater impact on how we do things has been the changing nature of information. This workshop will explore how digital/networked content and new information and communication technologies (ICT) are advancing science, technology, engineering, and mathematics education within the context of the emerging 21st century skills of innovation and collaboration.
Specific topics will be:
Blogs, wikis, podcasting, social networks, social bookmarks, an exhilarating array of data mining tools, social media, and RSS -- the magic that links it all together.
