Welcome to Basic Educational Technology to Master. Teachers often feel overwhelmed with all of the apps and websites when they go to education technology professional develop sessions or conferences. It is okay to not think you have to use every website or app you see. This companion site to my session of the same name will help you focus on what educational technologies you need to master so you can gain confidence with using technology in the classroom. Take what you like, get comfortable using it, then come back for more when you are ready.
