Designed for teachers at any grade level, students in this course will learn about important topics in educational technology, such as digital literacy, safety and privacy, collaboration, and preparing students to be good digital
citizens. Students will explore a variety of technology tools and apps and leave this course with a collection of resources and several integrated lesson plans.
