The more that I have learned about Ed Tech, the more I discover how much "stuff" is out there. There is a program for every particular niche and then some. One program does something one way and a second program does seemingly the same thing but slightly differently. It begins to become difficult to sift through after a while.
This is why I believe that when all is said and done we need to make sure not to loose sight of the goal. Our ultimate goal is to use these tools in order to better prepare our students, to help enable greater access for their learning, and to help them think creatively. Could this be done without Ed Tech? Maybe, but Ed Tech tools can make it more easily possible to fulfill these goals.
My suggestion is keep your eye on the field and constantly try new things because the world of Ed Tech is changing every day.
