Maximize technology to minimize wasted time!

Technology has changed the face of education. A vast amount of information is at our fingertips; however, if we don't know how to find, sift through, organize, and manage it effectively, it becomes overwhelming and useless. This straightforward guide provides teachers and administrators with the skills required to successfully harness the power of technology to improve instruction and save time.

Well organized and easy to read, Conquering InfoClutter is packed with self-assessments, stories and examples, try-out activities, focus questions, action plans, and professional development tips, which reinforce the invaluable ideas provided. From charts and screen shots, to online resource referrals and a companion Web site (www.infoclutter.com), the book will increase your proficiency, productivity, and peace of mind with technology.

This helpful manual features practical tips on how to:

  • Quickly find the information you need online
  • Organize and manage electronic files for easy retrieval and reuse of existing resources
  • Capitalize on email for efficient parent-student communication
  • Manage technology in the classroom and integrate it into the curriculum
  • Create your own Web site and share information with colleagues
