Innovation lies at the heart of every educational endeavour. The teacher’s (or parent’s) words cannot be monotonous, they must always feature new, updated accents. They can be repetitive, but not boring. That is why innovation is embedded in education. Yet technological tools are not enough. Technological innovation is useful, fundamental for the educational process, but it must be carefully designed and monitored every step of the way.
