Educators acquired an immediate understanding of the potential power of educational technology during the COIVD-19 pandemic. While we missed the proximity to and the interactions with our students, we poured our energies into moving instruction online.
There were educational technology tools that worked better than others. Some #edtech tools we tried for the first time during the pandemic, and some tools we tried and abandoned. Many schools or districts are now moving directly to a new learning management system (LMS). Share your recent experiences, which technologies enhanced/reduced your effectiveness this past spring?
Share the idea of blogging with your colleagues as a way to process the end of the year that wasn’t. Take the ideas of the friends in this challenge and hopefully build a year prepared for multiple formats!
What technologies enhanced/reduced your effectiveness this past spring?

This was an interesting prompt. It was good to reflect on this question. https://mrsdkrebs.edublogs.org/2020/07/14/week-5-of-8weeksofsummer-spring-technology/
