Is the ed tech you’re using a story changer or a story repeater? In this inspiring Ignite talk from ISTE 2016, Katharine Hale challenges you to take on what she calls “the single story problem” in schools. Traditionally, education has reinforced a single idea of want academic success looks like and, for kids who don’t fit the mold, their stories go like this: average student, special ed, behavior problem, etc. In this talk, Hale urges teachers to integrate tech thoughtfully and meaningfully to personalize learning and help students write their own stories.
