Quotes from this episode
“There is no holy grail. I really believe the teacher has to be a pedagogical engineer.”
On edtech “I look at affordability and reach. I want to see better UX and ease of use”
Talking about Japan, “I think technology can be the solution to the problem teachers have – connecting students with the world to broaden their minds.”
“When I talk to my colleagues about these technologies, no one understands about this, but our students use it all of their days.”
