210 - Are We Using TOO MANY APPS in Education?

In 2017, I attended ISTE in San Antonio, Texas. ISTE, or The International Society for Technology in Education, hosts the largest conference for educational technology in the world.

My first visit to the exhibitors’ hall was eye-opening.

Wow, I thought. There are a lot of edtech companies in education right now.

Welcome to SPARKS: mini-segments intended to spark your thinking and ignite your practice. These short episodes are based on my written reflections, which you can find on the Teachers on Fire Magazine at Medium.com.
