Webinar - The Promise of Technology in Developing 21st Century Skills
Tuesday, December 6, 2011
Technology affects the brain, for good or ill, and schools are increasingly using new technologies to educate students in the 21st century. This webinar will discuss technologies that are being implemented to improve students' cognitive skills and their thinking ability. The discussion will highlight four brain-compatible technologies in Harbor Beach, Michigan, a district whose superintendent emphasizes "information age tools for information age learning." Both practical applications and research results will be reviewed.

Curtis Boehmer, a Speech and Language Pathologist with the Huron Michigan Intermediate School District, and Betsy Hill, LEC's president will share the use and results of four brain-compatible technologies that have helped Harbor Beach Community Schools rise to the fourth-highest performing district in the state.
