Tom Daccord: EdTech Teacher

EdTech Teacher iPad Summit opens with an introduction by Tom Daccord.

Is your iPad on top of your school or in your classrooms?  Schools are using the iPad on top of their framework instead of building inside out.  What are we doing as educators to build off the ability of this creative device?  What is the student potential?

We need to stop app chasing. We do not want a conversation about 50 math apps.  All great apps fit  onto one screen.

Let’s have conversations about nurturing creativity, and student learning and not a repository of student apps.

I love this philosophy and that’s why I’m here.
