The problem with technology is there is so much of it. Sure, lots of EdTech can be a good thing, but when we’re faced with hundreds of websites and mobile apps, how can people who are not tech gurus know what works and what doesn’t?
In the Hack Learning podcast episode embedded above, longtime educator, author, and creator of the Teacher’s Guide to Tech, Jennifer Gonzalez, discusses the difficulties presented by a constantly-evolving and growing mountain of technology.
The main problem teachers and learners have with effectively using EdTech is time. — Jennifer Gonzalez
The key to success in EdTech is knowing where to find the technology and, as Jennifer Gonzalez suggests, locating the right tools for your class activities and then giving those tools a try.
In her Teacher’s Guide to Tech, Gonzalez organizes the best EdTech tools into over 30 education categories, eliminating the need for research, which is the time-eating monster that can make the technology seem overwhelming. Check out some of the categories and tools Gonzalez includes in her tech guide below.
