8 Uplifting Quotes For Discouraged Students

8 Uplifting Quotes For Discouraged Students | Art Teachers Rock | Scoop.it

"There are many reasons a student can lose focus in school. It can be bad grades that will discourage them to be inactive and to rebel. It can be the environment that can be stifling and suffocating for the students. It can be the fact that many of them don’t find it easy to the meaning in their struggles in school."

Although some of these provide different ways to integrate technology, I often wonder if, instead of making tech "fit", the goal should be what learning/growth/idea/concept do we want to explore and then proceed from there instead of seeing what tool we have and directing the learning with the tool.
