Elementary children love technology. They are motivated to use it and show great creativity when having access to computers, tablets, or other devices. In this presentation we will examine:
1. Why this is the case
2. Why teachers should address this learner need
3. And how they can do it
The presentation will discuss the needs of digital learners, the need to prepare children for a global and connected world in need of team players, and culturally literate employees.
Further, a number of actual software applications, programs, and products will be shared with the participants for future use in their classrooms.
