Unfortunately, the "EdTech vs. IT" mindset is all too prevalent in many organizations. Operational IT looks down disdainfully on their users from an ivory tower, viewing them as "threats" to be carefully controlled and monitored.
Teachers view the IT department as a bunch of out of touch control freaks who hinder rather than facilitate their work. As a former teacher, I have seen it from both sides.
This sad situation is wrong on many levels.
===> The relationship between IT and users should be a partnership, not a boxing match! <===
