Ed tech has taken over the education world, but does it actually help?
I watch social media closely and it's my job to share some of the hot topics on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, and other outlets that teachers, principals, students, and parents are contributing.
We Are Teachers recently posted an infographic from McGraw Hill Education showing how ed tech influences the student experience. The results are overwhelmingly positive. Ed tech increases student engagement, helps them adapt, and benefits them in other ways too. You can read about it here.
What other ways has ed tech influenced your classroom? How have you used it?
