the considered choice of technical platforms

i am conscious of the constraints and affordances of any platform you use to work with others in an educational way. Doesn't matter whether or not it is digital or manual. SO choose wisely- is this piece of digital technology able to be accessed, understood, interpreted by your group of learners?If not, then why are you choosing it?

Very wise words - so often I am seduced by tools but if they don't work for learners then they're no good.

I agree completely Willie. It's like any tool, people have done it, but if you're trying to dig a tunnel with a spoon, or paint around a window with a broom, it's going to get pretty frustrating.
