We all know that technology offers great opportunities for students to connect, create, collaborate, and learn. But with so many digital tools available, it’s not always easy to find the best ones — and it’s often even harder to figure out what to do with the tools once you have them.
Educators today also have to navigate the challenges that technology brings to the classroom — from not enough broadband to the behavioral and social issues that many students experience, like cyberbullying and digital drama, oversharing of information, digital cheating and plagiarism, and not understanding how to analyze and evaluate the credibility of websites.
