Proposal summary

Purpose & objective

Power Teachers craft lessons and experiences that weave technology throughout in order to to boost efficacy and increase student outcomes. In addition, the way we model using technology serves as a strong example to our students how to harness its power and use it so they will not be afraid to use it themselves - both in the classroom and in their future careers.
