The Best App for Your Coursework Isn’t a Single App

As educators, we often seek out not only one ecosystem but also one app to solve all of our problems and meet all of our needs. For example, over the past several months, I have engaged in a number of conversations about technology with educators that began with an either/or question:

  • Should I use Google Drive, Google Sites, or Padlet?
  • Should I use OneNote or Google Classroom?
  • Should I use SeeSaw or Office365?

My reaction to each line of questioning is: What do you want your students to do?

Teachers will ask me how they can use a particular product, and this is my exact same response. One of my rules of tech is that there are at least 3 ways to do any task, it’s up to you to figure out which one works best for you.

And just because your school is a Google Apps for Education school doesn’t mean your school can’t also be an Office 365 school (except for mail, it’s either one or the other). Figure out which works best for you and your students.
