This webinar will be useful to members that were unable to attend the conference as well as those that would like to continue their professional development after the national conference.

Technology not only prepares our students for workplace success in the digital age but also is extremely beneficial in diverse classrooms where students’ skill levels and interests vary. In this webinar participants will learn about 20 free and easy to use technologies that can be used to differentiate instruction and prepare ELLs for success in a connected global and digital society. Learn about exciting options to help engage students and meet instructional challenges.
