Let Students Choose

I was asked to write a guest blog post for EdTechTeam. I was honored to do so. The blog post was titled "Let Students Choose" and focused on letting students choose the technology tool that will highlight their talents, instead of forcing them to use a tool for the sake of using that tool. Below is the link to the blog post! I hope you enjoy!

These teachers spent four days learning how to use and discussing how to integrate several tools into their classrooms. Tools our Innovation Academy members are excited to use include:
