The technological myth in classrooms today is a trifecta: 1) if students aren’t learning on a technological device, then they aren’t learning at all 2) if teachers aren’t incorporating technology into a lesson, then they aren’t effective 3) if schools aren’t outfitted with the latest technology devices then they are behind, broke or operating on an old-school mentality. These assumptions couldn’t be further from the truth. Tune in to hear how to integrate technology the RIGHT way, not just in today’s world but in any classroom, anywhere at any time.
- You invest in technology because of what it can do for student learning
- Students are capable of learning at high levels regardless of tech integration
- Your students will be just fine if they do not have access to the latest and greatest tech trends because they will have a fabulous teacher who can design powerful lessons
- Kids are capable of showing astronomical growth in academics without touching a device
- Is there a tech tool that can teach this better than I can?
- The presence of tech doesn’t make a school GREAT. It’s how the tech is used that makes a school GREAT.
