Are you an #EdTech Hoarder?
Is your EdTech toolbox getting crowded? There are literally hundreds of tools for educators to use for a wide variety of purposes ranging from class discussions to lecture capture to portfolios and a dozen other categories. There are expensive learning management systems and “free” tools supported by advertising dollars and student data collection. There are tools dedicated just for assessment and tools designed for presentations. There are so many options.
Educators who love technology like to try new things and add them to their courses all the time. We’ve seen blog posts and conference presentations detailing lists of the essential 7 or 8 tools to use with your students. Do you need to use 7 or 8 different tools each semester? Is your course design getting cluttered with tools you don’t really need? Are you an EdTech hoarder?
It may be time to streamline the clutter and use a tool that does all of these things: VoiceThread.
If you want to learn how VoiceThread can be used to replace all of the tools you’ve gathered throughout the years, you can check out our workshop archive or view some of the resources below:
