Why do I need Drive and Evernote? Which is better: Explain Everything or Educreations? When would I use Diigo over Pinterest?It depends . . .Too often we look for a single solution when it comes to technology, yet our needs constantly evolve. Additionally, the apps and programs continually change. We each have personal preferences and methods, and on top of that, our students have different learning needs.Recently, I've found myself offering choices that would serve a purpose rather than teaching a specific tool. For example, teachers looking to curate web content might choose Evernote, Diigo, Pinterest, or Padlet. As long as their content can be saved, searched, and shared, they can choose the tool that they prefer. Each time we repeat the process of identifying a solution, we add a new element to our technology ecosystem.In the physical world, no two ecosystems resemble each other -- the tundra is far different than the desert. Similarly, no two technology systems are identical, though each requires a means to: - - Support and transport information - Create new content - Communicate and share - Sustain energy in order to thrive.Click headline to read more--

This is a synopsis of an eloquent reply to Time magazine's cover story on bad teachers. As practitioners we know the majority of our  staff are not rotten apples. With ever more mandates and stressors out upon teachers, we leaders must work to ensure the few bad apples don't spoil the rest of them.
