About this Learning Opportunity

If we suddenly ended up in an alternate reality where your district only allowed you to use a maximum of 10 edtech tools, what would those tools be? What would your selection criteria be? What role does pedagogy play in your decision-making? In this “digital literacy”-inspired session where we weigh the benefits of apps against a variety of costs, with an end goal of providing the best possible instructional support for student learning, how can we provide the best value for our classrooms with the minimum of app-related stresses? If you’d like more clarity in the sometimes-slippery-sloped world of educational apps, come join the conversation.
