As educators become even more frantically busy, the use of digital tools promises to navigate and resolve their everyday need of dealing with an overwhelming number of details.
However, as many of us have found out already, the straight substitution of online communication for face-to-face interactions has its own challenges. Worse still, if done in a piecemeal or ill-considered way, it leads to more work and cost.
This blog is all about avoiding such problems and making the best of the benefits which digital technologies bring us in education.
