Integrate Technology Effectively! Tip: Inspire with Student Examples

“The number one benefit of educational technology is that it empowers people to do what they want to do. It lets people be creative. It lets people be productive. It lets people learn things they didn’t think they could learn before, and so in a sense it is all about potential.” – Steve Ballmer

Students own their learning and acquire important digital skills when given the opportunity to create, produce, and problem-solve with technology. When students are first allowed to use technology for their projects they are excited. However, some learners need inspiration, encouragement, or ideas. That is why I love to show my students various examples of digital projects from learners just like them! In my new book, Hacking Digital Learning Strategies: 10 Ways to Launch EdTech Missions, I list different student examples for learners to evaluate with reflection activities in the Mission Prep sections. Below, find a list of inspiring young people making the world a better place with technology.

Challenge– Inspire students to do great things with technology by showing them inspiring examples created by learners like them.
