“We didn’t want technology to drive the curriculum. We wanted what was best to teach the kids. We wanted the curriculum to drive the technology. A lot of times people were like, ‘We have to go and incorporate all this tech stuff’, but it’s not about the technology. It’s about what is best for teaching and learning.”
