We are overwhelmed by new educational tools, but how do these become meaningful to our students? Reaching a tipping point when a technology becomes ubiquitous amongst students seems almost impossible, unless it's a tool as pervasive as google or email. So how do we get new tools out there? Should we push our Ss to use tools or else? Or should we just put stuff out there and see what sticks? Who has a success story here? And who feels that we are slowly sinking under the weight of all these new options?
