I recently found an article called 4 Lessons from K-12 Ed Tech Failures of 2014. (It’s good to hear that I’m not the only one who occasionally fails!). The educational use of technology evolves, grows and improves just as the technology itself. But growth does come with bumps and bruises. This was a quick easy read, but in case you’re crazy pressed for time, here are the four lessons shared in the article:
- Plan for digital initiatives centered around the learner, not the device
- Bring all learning initiatives under the umbrella of digital transformation
- Put privacy protections in place for student data
- Find sustainable ways to fund digital projects
