During the 2015-16 school year, I visited schools across the nation to see how technology can transform teaching and learning. The changes I’ve seen have been exciting, meaningful, and more often than not, challenging to get right.
The “digital divide” is still very real. In places like Eminence, Kentucky, we’ve seen how creative school leaders have found ways to ensure that as many students as possible can benefit from access to the Internet.
One piece that I see missing is how to build a personal learning network (PLN), so that you have a group of peers that can help you when you hit a rough patch. I have a couple of PLNs, groups that I can bounce ideas off of or help others with questions and support.
