Why It’s Time To Focus On Skills (Not Just Cool Tools) – Edudemic

“We have all seen list upon list of “cool tools,” “web 2.0 websites,” “educational apps.” They are a great source for the latest and greatest websites/tools in education. The problem is that they all fall short when it comes to talking about technology skills.

Ultimately these types of lists are a detriment to teachers and the effective integration of technology into the classroom.”
