What School Leaders Should Consider Before Choosing EdTech Tools with Rae Hughart – Easy EdTech Podcast 143

In this episode, author and educational leader, Rae Hughart, shares tips for what school leaders should consider before choosing EdTech tools for their school. You’ll also hear about her work with Teach Better and how they support educators to develop their passions to positively impact their school community.

This week’s episode is titled: What School Leaders Should Consider Before Choosing EdTech Tools with Rae Hughart. I’m so excited to have Rae join me on the podcast today. I had the chance to join her on her podcast in the past and we spend some time together at conferences in real life like you’ll hear us talk about in today’s episode. I reached out to Rae to ask her to come on the Easy EdTech Podcast today because I wanted to focus in on this idea of choosing EdTech tools.

It’s a time of year where we’re making a lot of choices, about the second half of the school year and I thought it would be a good time to do almost a reset with Rae today and talk about some of her tips for what school leaders should consider before choosing EdTech tools. Now just like every interview episode I’ll include plenty of links to connect with Rae and learn more about her work on the show notes page which you can find by clicking on the link wherever you’re listening to today’s episode. So let’s jump into this conversation!
