What new tools or content do teachers imagine?
Also, with each new application the need grows for point solutions, or point-to-point integration (connecting this app with that service or that site with this tool).
Suppose a teacher has an idea, such as:
“I wish there was a way to ____”
“if only they made a ____”
Are those ideas passed up the chain? Does BigCo encourage such feedback, and is the feedback passed on to developers?
How often does an #EdTechWish come true?
The following remarks were culled from Twitter:
“Shouldn’t Tech Developers (such as yourself) be reaching out to Schools/ Teachers/ Districts FIRST to create and design tech rather than the other way around?”
(Lindsey Lipsky) “..a tool that would auto math/convert/input grades from a digital rubric (& docs/forms) into my gradebook.”
