You might my piece at the British Council useful: “Four questions to ask before using an Ed Tech tool” Is My New British Council Post

During this past week, I’ve been lucky enough to see the two best posts I know of offering great advice on how to use educational technology.

I thought I’d bring them together in one post, along with links to some of my related “The Best” lists, and invite readers to contribute other resources, too.

You may, however, not have seen Frank Noschese’s absolutely brilliant post on Edtech PR Tips. In it, he offers advice to ed tech businesses who are trying to push their products onto schools. They also serve as an effective criteria for teachers to use to determine if and how to use any type of ed tech with their students.

Digital Worksheets is by John Spencer.
