MDR School of Thought
OCTOBER 12, 2018
This week, we share insights about what educators feel they need in order to be successful in their own classrooms! With the release of another informative and compelling research report, we are providing you with direct feedback from over 1,600 teachers who've shared the challenges of teaching in schools that are over 50 years old, and lack the infrastructure to support technology usage in today's classroom.

Also, in this issue of School of Thought, our hot topics include how to support teachers as they create student-centered learning opportunities; our big news on our big award; a recap of what you missed at EdNET 2018; 5 things you need to know if you are creating an app, and more!
