Prior to attending the Technology Integration Workshop, each teacher identifies one lesson or unit they want to enhance with additional technology. Technology Integration Specialists guide the teachers through the process. The Specialists use the Understanding by Design model to help the teachers effectively integrate technology into their curriculum. By the end of the Workshop, teachers have a lesson or unit they can use in their classroom the following school year. The units are categorized below by subject areas.
