The classroom is a delicate ecosystem that has balance, structure and order. This workshop is for those that want to use more manipulatives and technological devices in their classroom but are worried about how their students will react to them, thus throwing the ecosystem out of equilibrium. Not all policies and procedures are explained and disseminated on the first day of school. There will be times when you want to show your students how to use clickers, a small white board, smartboard, website, Facebook, Twitter, or BYOD.
