As classroom instruction has moved online, have you found yourself struggling to adapt? If so, you're not alone.
Today on the podcast, Sarah Gilmore and Katierose Deos, co-authors of Integrating Technology, joined my colleague Jaclyn Karabinas to talk about the stressful shift from in-person to online and blended instruction, and why we shouldn't get too caught up in what the newest and shiniest teaching tech is.
They both argue that while a level of comfort with online teaching tools is now necessary, our grounding principles about what we know is right for students should be guiding us now more than ever.
A transcript of this episode will be available soon.
