For many of our students, technology is just another aspect of their lives. They grew up with the Internet, social media, and mobile devices. Educators have experienced life without the Internet and social media. We realize balance is important to overall wellness. We also understand our students need to be kind and reflect on what they share with others online. In my book, Hacking Digital Learning Strategies with EdTech Missions, I introduce mission minded learning to help students reflect on the power they have to make a positive difference with their use of technology. Students are presented with a choice of digital missions with real world impact. On Thursday, March 1st, I will be the host for #WocoTeach and chat more about mission minded learning and integrating technology in meaningful ways. Join the chat at 5pmPT/ 7pmCT/ 8pmET by adding #WocoTeach to the end of your tweets. Below are the questions and some resources to prepare for the chat.
