Choosing whether or not to use a supplemental tech tool to support student learning can be one of the most difficult questions that teachers have to answer. With all of the requirements of curriculum and standards, teachers need strategies to help them decide whether a tech tool will support student learning and help them to achieve their learning goals or if a tech tool would be a fun, innovative activity that could distract from the overall learning goals. This session will help guide teachers and coaches through the process of analyzing student needs and whether a tech tool would enable students to design, collaborate, and innovate while also meeting the learning standards. Participants will engage with scenarios to decide whether or not technology should be used and what tech tools could be used to support students. Participants will also create guiding questions to take back to their schools to support classroom teachers when making decisions about using supplemental tech tools, such as Ozobot, Sphero, Makey Makey, etc.
