Sometimes, it's just that simple.

My last post "A day without laptops" had me in a quandary pretty much all afternoon.  Then, the words of Steven Anderson, our WSFCS Director of Instructional Technology came to mind:  "It's not about the devices, it's about instruction." So the simple answer to why my students didn't ask about the laptops? Because my lesson didn't "call" for it - it wasn't missed.  Sometimes it is just that simple.

  1. Thanks for sharing your "ah ha" moment! You are so right that there are some lessons where trying to fit in and force technology can be a hindrance to the instruction and then others where it fits in smoothly! That is where the teacher is so critical!
