Who likes chocolate covered vegetables? No one. Exactly. As we begin to integrate technology into our classrooms more and more, we need to be aware of "sugar coating" our learning. Especially at the high school level, our students can usually see right through the practice of grafting social media idioms into their classroom lives. While the attempt is to connect with the students, this practice usually only draws attention to the separation between the ages of the teacher and student. This presentation will focus on ways to authentically create a technology based classroom through ways such as: keeping learning goals ahead of technology, being critical of student feedback, and challenging students through technology.
