There were a lot of really engaging ideas here! I especially love the idea of bringing technology from the classrooms to students’ homes so they can get more familiar with the software in casual settings to prepare them for professional use. I was wondering how teachers could encourage parents to use apps like zoom more in their lives so children are more exposed to it, or what strategies have you used to get parents excited about common classroom technology?
