Today Eric Sheninger @E_Sheninger challenges us to move to the next level with digital technologies. We can't use tech because it is “cool and new.” It must improve learning. If it doesn't improve learning, why are we spending the money?

[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.
