I’m not sure how many different ways I can say this. Ed tech really isn’t about the technology, it’s about the teaching. It’s about focusing on learning first. It’s about understanding learning, defining outcomes, and knowing what good teaching is. Is technology fantastic? Of course. Am I an ed-tech evangalist? Yup.
Are we wasting SO much money, time, and people on technology that makes a marginal (if any) difference in learning?
Yes. The conversation should be less about what we have, and more about how we are teaching, and how our kids are learning.
