Elaine Roberts, Ph.D's curator insight, January 22, 9:23 AM

I love the idea of having a mix of resources so teachers can tailor, em, personalize (?) the technology to the learning objectives and needs of the students. Next week I'll be working with a school district that is exposing--and TRAINING--teachers on a range of technology options (LearnPad, iPads, Chromebooks, etc.) and letting them choose what to use when. Smart. Really smart.

Mark Fuson's curator insight, January 27, 8:42 AM

It will be interesting to see what Microsoft has to offer to compete with the Chromebook. I wish the author had gone into more detail about exactly what features (or lack thereof) of the Chromebook made it a poor choice in upper-grade levels.

Chris Carter's curator insight, January 20, 11:50 PM

"Students generally know how to use to technology, or they are generally able to quickly adapt to its use. However, they don’t usually know how to learn with technology." So true. Students are not digital natives in that they are masters of the realm. Instead, they are often ignorant of how to maximize the tech available to facilitate learning.
