5 Reasons to Embrace Ed Tech, An Article by K. Walsh

Those of you still asking why can get a clearer understanding of the need to embrace technology, here are 5 reasons for you to consider.  My favorite is #2, "the power to engage." I have found that engaged students are learning and that once students disengage, it is difficult to motivate them to re-engage.

This article keeps the reasons and rationales simple and Ms. Walsh states that teachers don't need to be experts on every tool and type of technology.  You can also create a PDF of the article if you want to share it with colleagues.  A PDF file takes away the "extra" stuff on a page and helps you keep it simple.

I hope you take a few minutes to engage with this article and see if you are hugging technology, for the sake of your students. 

As always, let me know what you think.
