That said, learning, trying and integrating edtech can sometimes be a daunting task. Sure, it has a multitude of positive benefits; if it didn't, why bother? But I certainly understand the trepidation of a teacher who worries that technology is "just" another thing to do when you have a chance to "get around to it." As a former classroom teacher until just a few months ago, I completely get it. You are busy, and don't want your time wasted with difficult tools that aren't worth the investment in time.
With this in mind, through this blog and my Twitter account, I want Shelby County educators to learn from each other by hearing about district teachers who integrate a certain edtech tool. If that makes you:
- aware of the diversity and depth of our teachers district-wide who effectively use edtech
- interested in a tool you haven't heard of before
- put a name to a tool, and you reach out via email or in person to ask the teacher a question about it
- all of the above
* I first got the idea of "round TUITs" from an item in Trainer's Warehouse (a wonderful resource for coaching items, BTW). But the way I use the acronym of TUIT above is original to me, as far as I know. :)
