Why You Should Care About Stupid Edtech Ideas! #ISTE19 Panel Reflection

For the past couple of years I’ve been a live reporter at ISTE and for 2 years interviewed folks with my toddler, Savvy. This year I am attending the amazing ISTE conference virtually thanks to #PasstheScopeEDU and the #NOTatISTE19 team! Below I have embedded F. Margret Atkinson’s recording of the ISTE session, More Stupid Ideas in Edtech (and Why You Should Totally Do Them) with @adambellow @leobrehm @smartinez @teach42 @jamiedonally and @andrewtwallace. The panel was quite humorous and some even poked fun at some of their ideas. The panel covered many different topics such as screen time, iPads, AR, VR, Twitter, Hour of Code, and even acronyms. The audience left with great technology integration ideas, tools, and laughs. However, the key takeaway can be summed up by @MeganBFrazer’s tweet:
