Too Focused on Buzzwords

Rafranz Davis

Later that evening, amidst crazy school canceling storms, I found myself looking through conference proposals and sessions. It bothered me. I won’t lie. I feel like we, this edtech community, are further drowning ourselves into a pile of buzzwords and platforms so much so that I have to wonder if people really understand what transformation, innovation, inquiry and even creativity looks and feels like.

We surely get way too focused on these buzzwords and tools and not on actual impact on students. It's not about the tool, it's about the student.
