This will read a lot like a pro-education technology post because it (more or less) is. I tried to get in the head of both teachers skeptical of “edtech” and teachers that have embraced it full-on.

When I began teaching, my childhood comfort with technology followed me into the classroom; I was always thrilled to introduce new hardware or software to my students. Yet for all my tech advocacy and usage, my sons are interacting with technology in ways I couldn’t have imagined even a few short years ago and—on some occasions—in ways I simply can’t understand.

"6 #EdTech Tools to Try in 2016" from Cult of Pedagogy About a year ago, I published an e-book called the Teacher’s Guide to Tech. Over the last month, I have been updating it for 2016, adding over 30 new tools and refreshing the information I had about the original ones.
