I have appreciated greatly the pedagogical stance of those presenting and leading the sessions--that technology needs to be in service of our teaching and purposes, rather than technology driving our teaching.
That said, I do not believe that the tools we are learning about (that any tools) are in any way neutral, and so I am struggling with sorting through, continually, how to appropriate various tools that seem to assume/embody quite a different set of commitments and values to the ones I am trying to live out in my teaching. "Efficiency" seems the supreme value of so much of this technology, and I guess one benefit of exploring it here is that it helps me clarify some of my purposes--they include trying to go slower (rather than faster), trying to deal with less (rather than more) in more depth.
