Midlands SIG Strategy
Our strategy is to strengthen awareness of technology tools and resources available by:
Exploring existing and new technology that can be applied to learning environments
Building a community of collaboration with members of similar interests
Creating an informal learning environment for those who wish to grow in their skill set
- Bi-monthly following the chapter meetings.
Each meeting is lead by a collaborative leader.
BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) – We strongly encourage you to bring your laptop, tablet or mobile device to actively participate in using the tools we are focusing on. If not able, we seek pairing.
Skill Level – Sessions are gauged toward skill level.
