This is a question that I hear and get asked a lot. I am not sure why educators devalue what they can do for students. Technology does help us (teachers) do a lot of tasks quicker, create amazing sharable content, and allow students to become good digital citizens. Technology does not and cannot replace the soft skills needed to become contributors to our global society. Technology can think and change direction, there is no “with-it-ness” with the tools, that is a human skill. Technology will not replace teachers but teachers who use technology will replace teachers who do not.
