    Yes! I absolutely agree! I went to a conference this summer and so many sessions were about promoting technology use in the classroom, but our conversations kept coming back to the fact that tools need to be utilized purposefully, and instructors need to have a full knowledge of how to use each tool, and which tool fit with the outcomes of the course/assignment. Using technology just to use technology is fruitless.
