Summer is on the horizon, and the only thing standing in the way is a couple more months of school. Teachers and students alike wrestled with the steep learning curve of remote teaching and learning. Much of our experience has been molded by trial and error, failure and success, frustration and elation.
The same is true for technology in the classroom. Above all else, technology is only helpful if it works well, a type of ROI–Return on Instruction. It is a systems-thinking approach, making sure that all the pieces–the technology, the teacher, the student, the school–all have their role; hope as we might, no technology is a silver bullet answer for any problem.
