Great Quotes by Technology Champions

"Today was a great way for us to see how the Learning Platform and the Digital Learning Platform are connected. This provided us a practical way to look at what good teaching looks like in a digital environment."
"The Digital Learning Platform put all the technology pieces together. The similarity and wide uses of the tools show their value in the learning process in many areas at the same time. I have learned new uses for familiar apps as well as new apps. I can include these in my classroom to reach more students in a deeper, more meaningful way."
"The BISD DLP model synthesized all of the components of a truly digital/21st classroom in a way that reminds me to include all of these learning aspects as I address the needs of my students."
