"I had the pleasure of listening to Clarence Fisher, via Skype, this past
week. He shared a number of powerful ideas with us, but there were two I found especially thought-provoking. The first idea, which was music to my ears, is that teachers need to know why they are using technology in the classroom. Yes, we are required to incorporate ICT into our teaching practices, but we must consider the following questions when using technology: Why are we doing this? Why are we using this particular device/program/website? What is the purpose of "this" technology? and What do my students need to know about technology?"
