This week Education Week‘s Ben Herold hosted a Twitter chat exploring what lessons public and private schools can learn from each other about effective technology use in the classroom.
The chat featured insights from ed-tech leaders Peter Hutton, head of school at Beaver Country Day, Chris Lehmann, principal of the Science Learning Academy and founder of Educon, and Kecia Ray, executive director of learning technology for the Metro Nashville schools system and the board chair for the International Society for Technology in Education.
Participants exchanged ideas for cultivating a shared ed-tech vision in schools, offered tips for teachers and district leaders about learning and integrating edtech into curriculum, and recommended resources for boosting technology and innovation efforts. The conversation focused on technology best practices for public and private schools, delving into advantages and challenges for implementing ed-tech programs in both environments.
