I am still in disbelief that I just wrote an article for a credible educational source! Well, if I can write for it, I’m not certain about it’s credibility anymore! I am glad to have written this article because it is exactly what I want educators to know about implementing edtech – keep it simple. It shouldn’t feel like a burden, it shouldn’t feel like a hassle: it should feel natural. I hope I convey that message well enough that teachers will believe me!
I think it is time to start implementing technology into the classroom in ways that were once unimaginable. We are just getting started, but some teachers are afraid to get the ball rolling. I challenge teachers who are afraid to just try it. Worst comes to worst, that edtech program doesn’t work, and the teacher moves on. But if it’s something that is easy to use, and the teacher and the students fall in love with it, the benefits are unbelievable. However, the teacher afraid of trying to implement edtech won’t understand the kind of benefits that can be achieved.
