Technology

A technology community that’s not just for technologists!

Whether or not you teach technical subjects, technology impacts your life and the lives of your students.

Our group aims to discover the hidden benefits of everyday technologies as pedagogical tools, whether to improve instruction, classroom activities, or student engagement.

We want to help instructors build an arsenal of ideas and activities that will allow efficient, engaging instruction of ANY subject.

Our membership comes from a number of disciplines and we are always seeking new members who have research questions they would like to pursue.  Bring us your ideas!
