A while ago I posted 10 Educational Technology Quotes I found to be inspiring, provoking, or just witty. Since then, I have been on patrol to find more educational technology quotes, and it has been a hard search! I’m not sure if it’s because the field is still relatively new or if it’s because I’m just not looking in the right places, but it shouldn’t be this hard to find good quotes about educational technology!
In any case, after months of searching, I finally have ten more quotes worthwhile of being presented. Enjoy!
