Technology: the Great, the Good and the Evil

Dr. Christopher Molnar, Curriculum Director, Porter and Chester Institutes

Legacy North 1

Using a successful model, this session will show how to modernize and standardize a curriculum

by implementing tablets, replacing paper with electronic, and implementing instructional

technology in a vocational program while increasing student involvement, soft skills, and

responsibility. The tablet has many more uses than just an e-book reader or a game machine,

it can make a difference in your classroom. Attendees will explore a model that can be followed

by others. Upon completion of this session attendees will have developed a game plan to bring

instructional technology into their HVAC programs and be able to anticipate and navigate some

of the obstacles to success.
