A couple reasons why I love technology....

1. Supports Universal Design for Learning (I'll explain)

2. Increases productivity

3. Keeps me organized (sometimes)

4. Encourages my creativity (Canva, Smore, Easelly, ThingLink, Wordpress)

5. Connects me to others trying to make an impact-- so much smarter together

6. Pushes the level of my work--accountability

7. Ability to engage & develop an audience and develop/curate content for them

8. Not limited to just one subject area-- can support almost any endeavor or job path

9. Less discrepancy in wages between males and females in tech positions

10. Possibilities are endless
