No need to feel that you are being left behind. Get down to your library and we can explain it all. @SLS Guernseyeven runs courses for you to learn how to keep up. 

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, August 8, 2014 9:50 PM

The pace of digital technology change is such that everyone is being left behind. It is important to develop skills which allow adaptation rather than mastery. The object is not to understand one type of digital technology, but to have skills that allow us to move from one to another as they emerge and work together.

Ninguna herramienta Tecnológica es infalible y ante ello siempre hay que tener un plan B...calma y asumir que navegamos en aguas caóticas que nos implicarán flexibilidad!!!!


Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, May 13, 2014 4:49 PM

One thing that would be helpful is not to force digital technologies on good teachers. They need support and it can be provided by providing them with opportunities to plan their professional development. They other thing that is important is do not assume that resistance is being tech shy. I resisted, but am hardly tech shy. What I resisted was the external experts who thought they knew more about my teaching and students than I did.
