Recorded in January 2014, this webinar by Sylvia Guinan looked at helping teachers to think for themselves about creative applications of technology. It was a very practical session with examples, as well as being a kind of open-ended exploration, brain-storming and thought-provoking presentation.

Theme: Social and emotional approaches to teaching with technology looks at how we can build confidence and creativity through using technology to help students express themselves socially, emotionally, linguistically, and intellectually, through whole-brain engagement for example. There are a number of practical examples that are suitable for classrooms where teaching incorporates a focus on integrated and blended learning.
