Technology Liaisons Network Events
2007 Technology Matters Institute
July 17–22, 2007
California State University, Chico
This invitational institute
will allow two-person teams from ten local writing project sites to explore the intersections of technology, teaching,
and writing in
support of their local site goals. The site team must include
the technology liaison, who should submit the online application. The
other team member may belong to the
site's technology team (if there is one), be a director, a co-director,
or a teacher-consultant at a site.
While engaging with a variety of tools and forums, each team will have ample opportunity to consider strategies for using technology to facilitate the work of its site. Participants will engage in a process of inquiry as they consider these technologies both in relation to their local site and in connection with their personal teaching goals.
Once the institute concludes, participating writing project sites will be able to apply for a $5,000 minigrant to support actualization of the planning and projects begun during the institute. (Read about current and former Technology Matters Minigrant projects.)
Travel and Lodging
The Technology Liaisons Network will cover the cost of the institute, including room and board once participants arrive at the institute. Local writing project sites will be expected to cover the cost for the team to travel to and from Chico, California.
