Applied Tech in Ed is a site based solely on increasing the functionality and practice of teachers using technology in their educational setting. Using technology can help create innovative ways to design, deliver, facilitate, and manage instruction for learners of all ages, whether it is face-to-face in a classroom, online, or a combination of methods.
As life long learners ourselves, it is important to demonstrate this to our students. It is essential to engage learners to understand the implications of technology in today’s society, empowering them to think, supporting them to lead their own learning and career paths, as well as the learning of others.
Applied Tech in Ed offers as many free resources as possible. It is run by Scott Swanson, a high school Math Teacher who teaches juvenile delinquents at West High School in District 287, in Minnetonka, Minnesota. Scott is an Innovation Coach and Math Teacher for the district. Scott is free to speak on best practices for incorporating technology in the classroom.
