Knowing how and when and for what purposes to use this technology is much more important than the technology itself. Technology integration in instruction requires much more than just digital literacy and technical knowledge, it requires foresight, clear intentions, and well planned goals. The purpose is to meet students learning needs and as such technology is only a means to an end and not the end itself.

Our Thinking Has To Change This is a bit of a rant… This morning I was pinged on a tweet sharing the article, “Why new technologies could never replace great teaching“.
