01 Why Technology and Questions to Ponder
In this episode, I address setting goals for technology use in the classroom and questions you should ask yourself when deciding which tech tool or app you will use.
When working on your personal or technology goals, always start with why you want to do “the thing.” Next, you need to identify how you will do it and last, think of what you want them to do.
When choosing new tech or tools for the classroom think of these 3 questions: What is the product? How much time investment is needed? And what kind of support will you have/need?
