Presentations (Click on the marked titles for more details)Technology and ıts Effects - Inside the Screenage Brain (after an idea by Coralie Clark).
Technology is increasingly used inside and outside the classroom. Many welcome the trend. Many feel disquiet. One thing seems clear: technology is not going to go away. In this session, current research and anecdotal evidence on the effects of technology use will be shared, with special focus on reading and learning. Participants are encouraged to share their concerns, approaches and solutions.
