What is the #2PencilChat?
The #2PencilChat is a weekly conversation about educational technology. When you look at Twitter chats, educational conferences, and professional development days, you see a lot of conversations about #EdTech. And when you see those conversations, you normally see conversations about apps, the Internet, and other device-y things. The technology that we discuss at the #2PC, though, is the technology that we've had for ages. When you buy a power drill, you don't throw out your screwdrivers, when you buy a microwave, you don't throw out your stove, and when you buy a laptop, you don't throw out your pencils, markers, and crayons. So as we enter a more student centered age, let's talk about using all the tools in our toolboxes to be innovative and dynamic teachers.
