For the past couple of years I’ve been a live reporter at ISTE and for 2 years interviewed folks with my toddler, Savvy. This year I am attending the amazing ISTE conference virtually thanks to #PasstheScopeEDU and the #NOTatISTE19 team! Below I have embedded F. Margret Atkinson’s recording of the ISTE session, More Stupid Ideas in Edtech (and Why You Should Totally Do Them) with @adambellow @leobrehm @smartinez @teach42 @jamiedonally and @andrewtwallace. The panel was quite humorous and some even poked fun at some of their ideas. The panel covered many different topics such as screen time, iPads, AR, VR, Twitter, Hour of Code, and even acronyms. The audience left with great technology integration ideas, tools, and laughs. However, the key takeaway can be summed up by @MeganBFrazer’s tweet:
The Stupid Ideas in Tech session at #ISTE19 is a good reminder that any tech tool can be purposeful in the hands of a good, creative educator … and, corollary, any tech can be useless if we are lazy with it. It all comes back to the teaching.
