In the northeast corner of the country, the school year starts this week! (I know this is a shock for my friends in the South and out on the West Coast who have been in school for a week or two.)
With that in mind, I wanted to strongly assert the principle that an educator's role is primarily to build meaningful relationships with students. Without those relationships, real honest learning cannot happen. I do believe, however, that technology can help build those relationships if used in a balanced and thoughtful way.
My recent post with Corwin Connect helps explain some examples. I'd be honored and grateful if you'd read and share.
