Here is a very interesting polemical post by Rolin Moe: A Manifesto Against EdTech© During an Emergency Online Pivot. The author is an EdTech expert, and he warns teachers against overuse of new flashy apps now that we are in this emergency teaching situation. “The best tools to get through this are the ones we have regular interaction with, not those brought in as a panic buy.” In short, pedagogy comes first and needs to be informed by technology – and we need to choose the tools that are available to us and have already worked well for us and our learners.
What about you, do you feel you have to run and learn about this app, and that app, and feel guilty when you don’t have the time? 😉
