A Microsoft TEI workshop is being held at GDGU on 17th Nov 2014. This one-day Technology Enriched Instruction (TEI) workshop is designed to help participants develop competencies that will enable them to effectively select, use, and evaluate technology tools and resources in their teaching. While many technology workshops simply provide training on the technology tools, the TEI workshop offers far more. TEI uses inquiry-based learning so that participants can actively experience a range of technology tools and resources and connect these tools with research-based approaches for use in their teaching. The TEI workshop uses technology to teach about the use of technology. We have designed the workshop to ensure that there is a good ‘fit’ between the content and the pedagogy and technology we use. We are demonstrating the application of the TPACK framework.
