Why Our Schools Need EdTech Professionals

Why Our Schools Need EdTech Professionals | Instructional Technology Tools | Scoop.it

The professional workforce has been quick to adopt new technology tools. We readily accept that tablets and smartphones, teleconferencing and social media are now essential fixtures of the workplace for millions across the globe. Yet we've been slow in extending these advances to our schools, and in particular our K-12 schools. While many children's home lives are abuzz with the same platforms and devices as the 21st century workplace, school just hasn't kept pace, and in many classrooms pedagogies are barely more inclusive of new technology than they were in the 1980s.

Erin Ryan's curator insight, October 11, 2015 5:50 PM

 Highly effective teachers think about technology use ahead of time- they plan and choose technology not because it's fun or jazzy, but for it's support in building strong student outcomes.
