Tech is great when used correctly. It’s even better when there is a purpose behind using tech.
This is especially important in homeschooling. One thing I’ve noticed is that some families jump head first into using tech for homeschooling with having a purpose for the tech they’re using.
I recently saw a Tweet from Mark Anderson that linked to an infographic he created that encapsulates many of the ideas that I’ve expressed in the past.

This infographic is brilliant (despite incorporating an over-used meme).
