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!!!!

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.
