The Daring Librarian provides a great post on how to assist the "reluctant tech learner." A key point she makes is the need to have them learn "how to do something with a project about which they're personally passionate."
To gather this information she went out to her Personal Learning Network and asked for suggestions. The post includes 8 tips (which includes the one above) as well as:
* Show and Tell - providing a "digital petting zoo"
* Providing lots of praise
* Small Steps (as in mini session)
It will probably come as no surprise that many of the techniques suggested also work in the classroom.
