There's is a constant debate about the use of technology versus helping students with basic skills. Of course these are mutually exclusive but in the midst of all this conversation, we sometimes miss the tenets of learning that really matter. What is it we really want for our children and how might technology support these?

Dean will share a few ideas that all teachers can bring back to their classrooms and focus on the things that really matter.
