Yoda on #Edtech & #mLearning

I’ve been reading a great deal about K12 technology integration (#edtech) and mobile learning (#mLearning). Ok… so maybe most of my “reading” has been twitter tweets. And many of the topics, concerns, problems, etc… that come up can be solved with a little Jedi reasoning. Here’s how Master Yoda, a little Jedi, would address the issues.
“Ready are you? What know you of ready?” As we move forward to integrate technology “Help you I can! Yes! Mm!Careful you must be when sensing the future” but our caution should not be a hinderance to progress. Our PD efforts should be to “Train yourself to let go of everything you fear to lose.” since “Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger, anger leads to hate, hate leads to suffering.Mobile Learning is a powerful tool, with very powerful equipment that says to us: “Size matters not. Look at me. Judge me by my size do you?” I hope your response to this post is “Meditate on this, I will.” and obviously “Much to learn, you still have.“Mind what you have learned. Save you it can!” but let’s get going! “Try not! Do or do not, there is no try.”
