Public education is, by its very nature, tangled with policy, dependent on rules and regulations set by federal, state, and district mandates. What most students do in school at any given moment has been prescribed by legislation passed years before they — or their parents — entered kindergarten.
All students have cultural strengths and resiliencies; we need to ensure we are using all these strengths, including the culture of online learning.
When technology administrators or edtech coordinators make technology decisions for schools, it is important to understand the cultural impact it will have on all stakeholders. Make cultural and workflow awareness part of your "beta" tech reforms.
