[shareable cite=”Eric Sheninger”]Just because kids are engaged doesn’t necessarily equate to the fact that they’re actually learning. @E_Sheninger[/shareable]

In today's show, we'll discuss:

  • Why we need evidence that learning is improving
  • Shifting assessment strategies that help students show what they understand
  • Arguments for student (and teacher) portfolios of learning
  • Why curriculum is no longer a valid argument against technology
  • Encouragement for teachers who feel like an island of innovation with technology.

I hope you enjoy this episode with Eric!

Some great points. Teachers have a LOT going on and so it is understandable to move slowly on adapting technology.

I’ve found that it can enhance and make your life easier. I look at it as pay some time up front but save more time in the long run.

I agree, We need to give everyone a little bit of time. With practice come perfection you can’t be great at every new thing you try.
