#EdTech Thought

  • Being ‘Good With Tech’ Doesn’t Overcome Poor Teaching

There’s no quick fix to bad teaching practices. Put in the work to be a better teacher because masking a lack of teaching ability with tech won’t do your students any good.

#EdTech Recommendation

  • Sheetgo
    • Sheetgo is an excellent add-on you should definitely install on your Google Sheets. It allows you to easily transform data between different spreadsheets in Google Sheets. You can also use it to create a centralized overview of your data by merging several sheets into a single sheet. You can even import data from Excel files you have in your Google Drive right into your Google Sheets. The same applies to other files such as CSV or TSV, with a single click you can bring all the data from those files to your Sheets.
    • Add Sheetgo to Google Sheets
  • Sync.com
    • Sync’s unique, zero-knowledge storage platform guarantees your privacy by providing end-to-end encryption, and only you have access to the keys.
    • 5GB FREE but if you use my link: chrisnesi.com/sync you will get 6 GB and it never expires.

  • We need to stop…
    • Giving HW (at least in elementary school and possibly in middle school). There is NO research that I have seen that speaks to a positive correlation between HW and academic achievement;
    • Giving grades… what is the point? Grades seem to bring the learning journey to an end, which goes against what most schools communicate when stating in their vision that they want to nurture lifelong learners! Lifelong learners need feedback, direction, and space to fail as they evolve.
