Expert Insight

by Jean Tower

Adam Bellow, David Warlick, Jon Bergmann, Kevin Corbett, and Jon Samuelson, each have an opportunity to answer the same questions in this post, Ed Tech Insights 5 Questions for 5 Thought Leaders. The various perspectives help to present a broader view about the current state of digital learning.


Here are the questions posed:

In your opinion, what’s the most exciting thing happening right now in digital learning?

Technology versus textbooks: will there ever be a winner?

What’s going to be the next big thing in ed tech?

If you could give one piece of advice to teachers about how to integrate technology in their classroom this fall, what would it be?

What’s your best kept ed tech secret?

 From the maker movement to the flipped classroom to BYOT, these leaders are each excited by different trends in ed tech. Judging by their answers about textbooks, none of them will be rushing out to buy stock in a textbook publisher any time soon.

David’s answer about advice for integrating technology reflects what I have been talking about lately – I created a poster for my office that says –

Goodbye to technology integration.

Hello to empowered digital learning.

Adam mentions his PLN in talking about the biggest ed tech secret. PLNs certainly provide powerful ways to stay connected, learn, share, and grow. What’s your biggest ed tech secret and how will you share it with your PLN?
