What’s keeping your school behind the technology curve? Is it a fear of the unfamiliar? Expenses? Or some other myth? Have you considered how students with special needs or students learning a second language may benefit from using digital tools?
If you’ve fallen for the perception that technology is too expensive, unnecessary for real learning, or a distraction in the classroom, then you need this book. You use technology in your job. Why not help your students use it in theirs?
Educator Matt Renwick debunks five common myths about technology and helps you consider how to fund and manage the devices and create a supportive, schoolwide program. Renwick uses his school’s experiences and examples as a foundation to explain how you can assess and answer your students’ technology needs in terms of access, purpose, and audience—and why you and your school cannot afford to keep students from using technology in their education.
