Joining #edchatie to see if other people think there is too much tech in classrooms. I teach in 3rd level spaces, some filled with dual screens and others with VR goggles.

#edchatie I don’t think there is too much of an emphasis on tech ... I think schools can be uninformed at times when it comes to it and as a result , decisions are made that are not conducive to effective tech use

There are steps in place to fully support tech use but It can be overwhelming at times #edchatie

@fboss Thanks so much - I was just testing it on my family - and reckoned no better crowd than the #edchatie folk. This is a nice bit of tech in the classroom. Great to allow all to engage. #Slido

I’m concerned about over emphasis when there are so many other pressing issues, and when tech isn’t used well. #edchatie
