Tech Summer Institute 2012 (TechSI 2012)

This is the launching page for Technology, Writers and Writing: A Technology Summer Institute Sponsored by the Connecticut Writing Project in Collaboration with EASTCONN. TechSI 2012 is the 5th annual Tech Summer Institute. It is a three day open institute which focuses on exploring a variety of technology tools that support writing, teaching and learning. Each day will focus on a different topic:
  • Day 1: Free Web 2.0 Tools to Enhance Teaching and Learning
  • Day 2: Designing Online Learning Environments with Wikispaces or Moodle - CANCELLED
  • Day 3: Edmodo: A School-Friendly Alternative to Facebook for Social Networking - CANCELLED
Each day is designed as a combination of demonstration, “hands on” time, and discussions of the implications of using these powerful technology tools with students. Educators are invited to come and immerse themselves for one or more days and discover how these tools can change teaching and learning for them and their students forever.
