You’re thinking you want to bring a shiny new learning technology into your course, with an eye to spice things up a bit. Take a deep breath and ask yourself these questions. Is the technology accessible to all students? Does it protect student privacy? Is it fun? And perhaps most importantly, does it serve your learning objectives?
