How to Get Hesitant Teachers to Use Technology

How to Get Hesitant Teachers to Use Technology | Teacher2Teacher K-6 Education Info & Chat. | Scoop.it
As a tech advocate, I often find myself coaxing established educators to incorporate new tools & technologies. Here are some ways I've found to be successful.

 

1. Do not set out to “fix” anyone’s teaching

If you’re working with veteran educators, this is especially important. They have been successful in their field for many years, often decades. Perhaps they teach an AP course and are used to a high percentage of 4’s and 5’s on the AP exam. Maybe they teach a writing class and feel that they are effectively preparing their students with advanced writing skills. Regardless of their specialty, approaching a hesitant teacher with an eye to radically change their curriculum and pedagogy can feel threatening and critical.

 

Instead, try this: observe what they do in the classroom that’s made them successful and build out from there. Offer suggestions on how to make their good teaching practices more efficient or effective, using tools that clearly make tasks easier to accomplish. Perhaps DropBox will facilitate distributing handouts in the classroom, Google Drive is a better alternative to emailing drafts back and forth, or Google Earth can provide more interactive exploration of the Grand Canyon. Tailor your approach to each faculty member, with specific ideas to facilitate and/or enhance their teaching.

 

===> As they become comfortable with new tech, they will very likely be open to conversations about other digital tools you are using in your own work. <===
