Instructional Technology-and Teacher/Student Relationships

“In this hybrid conception of personalization, educators can carry out a series of practices to make sure that technology and data enhance relationships, but do not pretend to substitute for them.”

Quote above is from Susan Sandler, and her splendid new article published in Ed Week on personalization vs. the people factor and how the deeper/wider uses of instructional technology can positively and negatively impact school relationships with students. (Thank you to Distinctive Schools colleague Amanda Rychel for calling this article to my attention!)

The article can be found at link:

It is another must read in my estimation.
