As educators, we are advocates for our programs, spaces, and jobs. Sometimes finding the right technology tool to help us communicate with stakeholders is very overwhelming. Some of the questions and thoughts we've had include: "Where do I even begin?" "I COULD just use PowerPoint...again." "There are just too many choices!" "Ok, I like this tech tool but how do I use it?"

This workshop will give educators the opportunity to explore a few powerful presentation tools, empowering them to build upon their digital toolbox. Participants will have time to work individually and collaboratively to put the tools into action!
