Participants are encouraged to contribute to discussion about the best tools for specific learning intentions and the variety of ways that tools can be used effectively to allow student collaboration and collective learning. Participants will have the opportunity to explore a teacher-built learning resource and discuss ideas for using a range of online learning tools.
