Description. Are you a graduate teaching assistant wanting to learn more ways to use technology effectively in your classes? Are there goals and outcomes you have set for your students that you think certain technologies could help students reach?  The "Technology for Effective Teaching" workshop is designed to help GTAs learn about, choose, and integrate classroom technologies that will help them teach more effectively. This workshop will provide GTAs with an understanding of how using various technological platforms can enhance students' knowledge of research skills, group collaboration, and in-class discussion, in addition to offering resources that are helpful for teachers in responding to student work. The presenters will demonstrate, through hands-on activities, how to integrate a range of technologies in order to enhance the goals and process of teaching.

Learning Outcomes. As a result of this session, participants will be able to:

1. Understand several new technologies that they might integrate into their classrooms to enhance instruction

2. Consider the importance of assessing the affordances and limitations of any technology or strategy

3. Reflect on their own teaching goals and identify technologies that might help them meet those goals
