#EdTech Thought

Inspiration from the CalicoSpanish.com article, Technology in the Classroom: the Right Tool at the Right Time, and my completed MA Thesis sparked my thoughts about technology integration and not only choosing specific tech tools and the right time to use them but the bigger picture about technology integration and when to use and not use technology.
