Why We Shouldn't Fear Technology in the Classroom

Technology in the classroom doesn't have to be something from a teacher's nightmare. Here's how to ease into it and make it work in your classroom.

Shelly Reckow VanVoorst's curator insight, October 24, 2015 10:26 PM

I scooped this article because it pertains to all schools and classrooms, especially as we move forward, and outside pressure mount to provide students with newer technology.  The article outlines some of the common fears, as well as ones that most educators won't admit to, such as fear of not being able to learn the new technology and utilizing it correctly in the classroom.  I hope that educators within my district read this and realize that as administrators we are aware of these concerns and we are working towards elevating the concerns so that educators can be successful in the classrooms.

I consider that the first step to include technologycal devices and tools in the classroom, is to identify those aspects mentioned in this article. The next step is to search for tools and strategies that help teachers to deal with those problems. English language teachers in Colombia not only need to change the traditional teaching method, we also need to change the type of output that we provide. Thus, teaching and technology will be in the same path.
