How to Use Technology WITHOUT Tech Tools

How to Use Technology Without TECH Tools

So you’ve seen all the incredible new apps, social media platforms, or software demos, right? You’d love to use them with your students, but the trouble? You don’t have access to a computer lab/devices. To add to it, much of what you love is blocked.  What can you do?

Well for starters, don’t give up on using technology!  Technology itself is much like the arts: it’s based in processes.  The tools are just the avenue that allows the process to happen.  You can always pursue another avenue – and it doesn’t need to be connected to WiFi to make it happen.

In today’s episode of EducationCloset On-Demand, I share with you two of my favorite ideas for using technology processes without ANY technology tools.  I call them Insta-Anything and Post-It-Crazy.  You’ll find yourself integrating the methods behind the technology. And, you can watch the arts come to life – all without a device in sight.
