This week’s question comes from Carla Arena, who asks:
How do teachers make informed decisions in relation to a balanced use of technology in the classroom? Where can new teachers become better informed about best practices for technology use in the classroom without becoming overwhelmed and discouraged by the overload of information?
Now that’s an issue often faced by new and experienced teachers alike! It’s fairly easy to feel seduced, scared, frustrated or burdened by educational technology. Let’s explore the best ways to get a handle on ed tech so that it benefits our students and doesn’t create even more pressure on us teachers.
Please leave your responses to Carla’s question in the comments section of this post. I’ll share a few of them next Wednesday, where I’ll also publish my response and ideas from invited guests.
Anyone whose question is selected for this weekly column can choose one free book from a selection of twelve published by Eye On Education. Thanks, Carla!
You can send questions to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.When you send in your question, let me know if I can use your real name if it’s selected or if you’d prefer remaining anonymous and have a pseudonym in mind.
I’m looking forward to learning from people’s responses!
