Now… on to the post!
Here are some signs that you may be missing opportunities with your school’s technology integration efforts:
- Your LMS is primarily used as a document management system
- Lots of Kahoots but not much student creation
- Many conversations about responsible and appropriate use, not many conversations about empowered use
- Teachers are the primary users of technology
- Digital worksheets greatly outnumber student multimedia products
- Teachers are gravitating toward technologies that allow them to tightly control the student learning experience (e.g., NearPod, GoGuardian)
- Silent work alone on ‘personalized,’ adaptive learning software modules is a dominant modality for students
- A greater emphasis on filtering and blocking than on equitable access and usage
- Technology professional development sessions are sparsely (or reluctantly) attended
- The ‘yes buts’ outweigh your visions for technology-infused student learning possibilities
These are just a few. What else might you add?
