Come and play with technology that is both easy to use and fun for elementary-aged students. Learn how students can take notes and do research projects that they can never lose, tell stories with cartoons, and play a Pokemon Go type game in the hallways of their school as a way to review what they have learned! All software titles in this workshop are free and readily available in most districts. Gamify your classroom and "level up."
