Dr. Chris Peters

Want to find out how to engage at-risk students in using technology?

How can I use technology with my students if I have a very tight budget?

Dr. Chris Peters will discuss positive ways that technology can be made part of any school’s dropout prevention strategy. Topics to be covered in this live discussion range from "big picture" issues such as developing realistic expectations of what technology can and can’t do, to spotlighting specific technologies that are both powerful and inexpensive. While aimed particularly at those working with students in the school setting, this program will hold valuable insights and recommendations for parents, community members, and at-risk students themselves.
