Keep Moving Forward!

Hello <<First Name>>  This past year has been one for the books.

This has been a tough year for educators! There have been Zooms and Meets, Looms and Screencastifys. There have been Flipgrids, Nearpods, and Pear Decks. There has been a lot, that's for sure.

For different educators, there's been different levels of tech integration. For some, just managing a synchronous class over Zoom or Meet is enough. For others, there are HyperDocs and Gimkits.  That's because we are all at different stages in our journeys as technology integrators, which reminds me of a famous quote from the great Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The quote said,

“If you can't fly then run, if you can't run then walk, if you can't walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.”

Dr. King often used this quote when speaking to student groups about the Civil Rights movement, but I think that it applies here with educational technology.

You may look at the teacher doing virtual station rotations with breakout rooms and choice boards and think “Wow, I can’t fly like that.” And that's okay. Maybe you’re not ready to fly, so you should run, or walk, or crawl, but you’ve just got to keep moving forward. As long as we’re moving forward, we’re doing what’s right for our learners.

Speaking of moving forward the podcast episode below features a guy who's done so much over the last decade to move tech integration forward!
