Moving forward we need to be mindful of how technology is a part of learning. Mindfulness about purpose and role will be key as we move forward with the learning and teaching in this new now.
From 2009-2020 my blog existed at Technology Chatter using the edublog platform. Due to various reasons I have decided to move my blog over to this Blogger platform starting now (June 2020). It seems fitting to make this transition now as we are just finishing up 3 months of virtual learning brought on by the closures due to COVID-19. Priorities that existed pre-March 2020 have shifted as we have discussions on what the 'new now' will look like. What hasn't changed is how students learn. Now more than ever, whether we are physically in a school building or in a virtual classroom online, we need to engage students in authentic, real-world problem-based, and project-based learning. That is the base of my new blog title 'Mindful Edtech'.
Sit back, grab a cup of coffee and let's be mindful about where we are going and how we are using Edtech to advance and extend learning!
