Technology Test Kitchen Cookbook

USNH Technology Cookbook 

Technology Cookbook cover


At the ATI 2016 we introduced the Technology Test Kitchen where "chefs" presented a different technology in an open, interactive hands-on approach giving the ATI participants the opportunity to explore different technologies that they might incorporate into their open education project and/or their classes.

Each of the chefs created a "recipe" which include details and resources for using the technology they presented.  These test kitchen recipes are compiled into the USNH Technology Cookbook which can be downloaded for future reference and to share. 



The cookbook was updated for the ATI January 2018 event and was converted into PressBooks format which can be updated at each event.  Old recipes from prior events were updated. This is what you can find in our new cookbook:
