Tech has to be aligned
to your goals.

The tech should serve
the learning. http://j.mp/stranger-in-these-parts Tech will always fail when you need it most.
This is not a bug, but a feature.
Be prepared to turn #fail into #win develop a backchannel

http://www.zotero.org/support/plugins Tech for teaching and learning are not in opposition, but are complementary.
Choose tools that enhance your learning goals
ie, the learning curve for the tech incorporates or complements the learning curve for your content.
break your use of tech into many many small, lego-like pieces that build towards a goal. 'Digital Natives' are a myth.
Just because it's a digital tool
doesn't mean people will
-use it
-like it
-understand it. Shawn Graham,

Teach good habits for naming files.
Encourage the use of Dropbox, Box, or other off-site storage for a students' work.

"My computer failed". Show why this doesn't matter. https://www.dropbox.com/spacerace?r=NTM3NzE2Mjk2OQ And by the way.... ...help Carleton U win the Dropbox Space Race! http://freemind.sourceforge.net http://voyant-tools.org One last thing - taking attendance.
