We Need More EdTech, But Less Technology In The Classroom

We Need More EdTech, But Less Technology In The Classroom | Teaching & Technology | Scoop.it
Technology plays a primary role in my teaching, but I rarely turn on the computer that makes the classroom “smart.” Occasionally, I project the class tweet stream. I am an advocate of Twitter for higher ed.

Very good points ! Once parents are shown what the tablet can or can't do, they become supporters. We have had no major accidents with tablets so far with 4 graders. (9-10 year old pupils).
