Via Maria Margarida Correia, John Evans
Kelly Christopherson's insight:

There will always be new apps and new ways to do things. One of the biggest learning curves I had was to seek out the advice of others instead of trying everything myself. This list has a number of great suggestions but make sure you know what it is you want from the app/tool before you begin looking.

Biggest Barriers to Digital Learning: Lack of Time, Lack of Devices -- THE Journal

Biggest Barriers to Digital Learning: Lack of Time, Lack of Devices -- THE Journal | Educational Discourse | Scoop.it
The biggest barrier to digital learning for teachers is gaining student access to technology. That's followed by a lack of time during the school day. For administrators, the top concern is providing relevant and effective professional development to their staff, followed by limitations and problems with the technological infrastructure, such as WiFi and security. Overall, across both roles, the main obstacle to integrating technology into the classroom was lack of time and an insufficient number of devices to do so.
Kelly Christopherson's insight:
It seems that time continues to be one of the key issues when it comes to integrating technology. But would it help if some of the other issues - PD, access, hardware - were addressed. Would addressing these issues help to alleviate the time issue?
