Technology Essentials for the Classroom

Access to artificial intelligence, or AI, has led to even greater shifts in the world of educational technology. The emergence of ChatGPT in late 2022, had many teachers and school districts planning efforts to block the technology due to fears of cheating. Over time, the benefits of AI have come to light, including its use as a powerful classroom tool to make lessons more interactive, generate personalized learning activities, and develop time-saving processes for teachers.

Educators have found that these new technologies can boost efficiency, opening up more time for direct engagement with students and development of personalized opportunities for learning.

This fresh focus on technology presents new challenges and opportunities for innovation as we continue to navigate the new landscape.

However, as educators continue to evolve their practice post-2023, a few essential questions remain unanswered: What does high-quality tech integration look like? What strategies and best practices can I draw on that support learning with tech? Which digital tools align with these efforts?

This ebook looks to answer these questions and provide educators with the guidance they need to nurture a learning-first classroom, with intentional and seamless tech integration.
