I was listening to a recent episode of Simon Sinek's podcast, A Bit of Optimism, and his guest was Francesca Hogi, a love and life coach. As a love coach, she teaches single people how to transcend their romantic challenges and find true love. As a life coach, she teaches rebels and seekers to love their lives truly.

You might be thinking, "What do a love and life coach have to do with education technology?" or "Is everything OK in your marriage Chris?" Stick with me. AND...everything is fine with Katelyn and me.

  • Dating is an Experiment / EdTech is an Experiment
  • Dating has been revolutionized by technology / Education is being revolutionized by technology
  • Better dates will lead to better relationships / Trying more technology and finding what works for you will lead to better integration
  • No bad dates / No bad tech - what's your approach? Approach all your tech with the best intentions and you will grow when you use technology. Your students will grow each time they work with technology. You will learn what tools don't meet your needs and you will develop a healthy technology integration mindset.

During Simon and Francesca's conversation, she talked about how to be a better dater and go on better dates. This directly mimics your approach to your relationship with education technology and what it should look like.
