In the words of Kyle Pace....
We need to stop putting the pressure on ourselves to be as good as so-and-so; or that I should using this tech tool or that tech tool. This is an internal struggle that you won’t win. What matters is that you are taking the necessary steps to move forward in your practice. You’re becoming better! That’s what the focus needs to be. Not on the speed it’s happening (or isn’t) or if you’re using the same tools/devices as your neighbor in the classroom next door. It’s better to move forward slowly than not move forward at all!
I hope that the resources within this website can help teachers to find ways to find tech tools that help them in their quest to move forward in their practice. Being a teacher in the 21st Century is, and will continue to be, a challenge!
