Have I pushed my students too far sometimes?

Everything is good in moderation, and technology is no exception.

I love using tech both inside and outside the classroom. I have a strong belief backed by my students’ data on how it improves their learning.

But occasionally I wonder, with technology so prevalent in the picture, have I pushed them too far sometimes?

The introduction of technology in education has so far been controversial, and normally that’s because parents and teachers worry about:

  • extra screen time
  • the lack of face-to-face interaction
  • the distractions it causes

But what about considering how technology may lead teachers to raise the bar on the quality of work we expect them to submit?

Don’t get me wrong.

I am a big tech advocate in the classroom and the benefits it brings to our students.

I love giving students tools to create projects/presentations because they can be valuable to them in their future careers as well.
