There is no one ed tech initiative or tool that works in every situation because schools are unique entities and are part of unique communities. School leaders should focus on four potential uses of technology and find the right "keys" for their unique situation. Those potential uses are:
Scaling up quality instruction, such as through prerecorded quality lessons.
Facilitating differentiated instruction, through, for example, computer-adaptive learning and live one-on-one tutoring.
Expanding opportunities to practice.
Increasing learner engagement through videos and games.
This book and the course it was created for provide resources and guidance for school leaders, be they classroom teachers, technology/curriculum directors, or building level administrators.
