Curriculum Connections/ Instructional Impact: Information from this session will support the learning objectives from the elementary CAP documents in all content areas, focusing primarily on literacy & communication KUDs.

Session Objectives / Goal:
There are many technology tools that are both age and content appropriate for elementary students. Students can learn and demonstrate high level literacy skills using these tools individually and collaboratively. My goal is to share technology integration ideas and to gain new ideas from attendees. This will be an active presentation, filled with ideas that will engage and motivate students and teachers alike.
