Heard often from educators…
“We need our students to be deep thinkers, have resiliency, and learn the importance of hard work!”
Also heard from educators…
“Why do you use that app?”
“Because it is quick and easy!”
If we want our students to have depth within their learning, we have to figure out when “quick and easy” overrides depth in our own.
Yes, there are some things that take a lot of work and resiliency to make happen for our own learning, but that process is part of the journey. In education, the process is the product. Remember that.
Quick and easy is not always best, and sometimes, does the exact opposite of what we hope for our students.
