Technology Integration: Empathy In Action

Carol Glanville, Education Technology Consultant

The influence of technology in the day to day lives of our students and, increasingly, their families is undeniable. As educators in non-public schools, we can use empathy and curiosity to increase student engagement in every lesson. Walk a mile in the shoes of your students and discover how effective technology integration can foster engagement, deeper learning and strengthen formation.
