Beta Testing for edtech companies
I used to think that it was great fun to beta test a product for a company, but lately it hasn’t been as rewarding or interesting. I spend a lot of my free time figuring out how to integrate and utilize technology in the classroom as it is, beta testing is all the work but for a product that we may never actually use (or hear about again). My hope is to stumble across the next big thing in education – the next TinkerCAD or Scratch – and make the first tutorials that help teachers use it to bring out the creativity of students, not just test prep or entertain.
Tonight I am learning about Figma. Jury is still out, hopefully it’ll be great!
