Personalizing Tech- Some Thoughts on Last Night's #Edtechbridge Chat
Last night I participated in #edtechbridge chat. The topic was using Tech in ECE ( Early Childhood Education).
I honestly didn't get it or missed something. Technology is a tool that helps with student engagement, meeting the needs of our students and learning outcomes.
Since one size doesn't fits all, therefore technology and how its used will be different based on the grade level, subject and student needs.
I understand that ECE may be unique in that the students, as one participant commented to me last night, take naps and have other unique needs that we don't necessarily find in other grade levels.
I agree with that but by definition if technology is a tool it needs to be crafted and meet the needs of students at any age and every grade level.
Therefore I believe technology and how it is use will be different but not only because of the age but because our goal is engage and meet the unique needs of each student.
Would love to hear what you think
