Here are handouts from a session on Technology in the 21st century:

I didn’t actually attend this session, but in looking at the handouts it had some interesting information.  If you want to explore tech resources currently available–the PDF above is a great start!

Here’s an interesting quote I found in the material:

Interest is one of the best predictors of achievement across a variety of domains.

When students enjoy tasks, they are intrinsically motivated to do well.  Both interests and personal relevance produce intrinsic value for a student.

(Siegle, Rubenstein, Pollard, & Romey, 2010)
