Technology that is not disruptive and fits effortlessly into everyday lessons
Technology that improves the lesson and promotes learning
Technology that increases students performance, learning, employability skills, motivation and self management.
Technology that is relevant to students
Technology that promotes technology
This simplistic list has become a bit of a security blanket and helps me focus on creating really good lessons that are well supported by internet technology.
