Digital Fluency for Adopting New Technologies

Every day there seems to be a new system or technology that vies for our attention. The shiniest and newest might win your attention, causing you to ignore the most useful time saving ones. Choosing the easiest or fastest solution might also leave us less adaptable later. In this keynote we will look at some successful strategies for technology adoption, harness the power of those around you, and cultivate digital fluency in yourself and students.
