The No Tech Meeting So YOU Will Pay Attention

I absolutely agree with this column.  We limit ourselves and our students if we can not access technology to help us learn.  I am a professional and can multitask.  Please do not tell me how best to interact with new material.  Likewise, if we do not train our students to use technology to enhance their performance in all settings than we are sending very mixed messages.

Check out the following ideas from ‘The Innovative Educator’.
