Many teachers, principals and district leaders found that the number one challenge they face to deeper engagement of ed tech in their district isn’t student or teacher tech fatigue. It’s not lost or damaged devices. It’s not insufficient home internet access. The number one challenge to deeper ed tech engagement in their district? Is digital distractions caused by students gaining, in many cases, unrestricted access to YouTube, Google games, embedded games on school devices during class. Innovative instructional efforts when combined with innovative technological advancements, provide viable solutions school leaders should be aware of to help ensure student-use of school-issued devices remains productive and academically focused.
