Event Description

Drop by Scarfe Foyer at lunchtime on February 11th to see this month’s Technology in Transit showcase, which features note-taking software Evernote!
Evernote is a cloud based system where you can store and access files across multiple devices. You can take notes from your work, to home, to meetings and more. The app is free and easy to use, and is easily implemented in the classroom.

Raising technology awareness is an important part of what we do. On the second Wednesday of every month, Educational Technology Support (ETS) hosts Technology in Transit. Technology in Transit is a space for Teacher Candidates and graduate students to demonstrate different teaching and learning technologies that they have been actively using. The one-hour session offers people the opportunity to engage with educational technology as they walk through the Scarfe foyer during their lunch break.

The information sheet from this presentation can be found here.
