How to choose the right education technology

Englert noted that, when it doubt, there are six areas of education technology integration to take into consideration when considering tools and project design:

1. Put yourself in the role of the student; remember: it’s about the student experience.

2. Know the curriculum.

3. Know what the teacher wants to accomplish with their students.

4. Don’t dismiss the education technology already on-hand.

5. Accept that there will be “uh-ohs.”

6. Leadership can be from the middle.

Next on Englert’s education technology integration? iPads for grades three and four, and using Edmodo and edWeb  to communicate best practices, lesson ideas, and practical experiences for personalized professional development.

“Our work is never done when it comes to education technology,” said Englert.
