Punished by innovation: The need for better focus on IMPLEMENTATION of educational technologies

Posted by Mark K. Warford, Ph.D. on October 13, 2014 at 11:30am 0 Comments

There was a recent Chronicle of Higher Education piece that raised some concerns.

As a K12 teacher in my formative years, I remember taking education courses while I was teaching high school French to complete my masters.
