Sin #6: Versatility – The 17 Deadly Sins of Flipped Learning Technology Selection

I love simple tools that can do a lot of things. My main hobby is triathlons, and I like to keep track of my workouts. I have a watch that measures the distance I travel, the steps I take, the laps I swim, and at least 30 other physiological measurements. This watch is like the swiss army knife of fitness watches.

The beauty of these tools is that they require us to use less additional technology and generally are simpler.

When evaluating any technology tool, make sure to balance versatility with the functions you need and make choices that value your staff.
