Technology Enablers

Educational technology platforms like Minecraft, Edmodo, and DreamBox Learning help execute collaborative teaching strategies that promote engagement and creativity.

When educators focus exclusively on teaching state requirements, there is little time left to incorporate activities that teach critical thinking and guide creativity.

How might we help teachers find technologies that fit state standards yet support and empower alternative learning styles?
