Tech Integration Barriers: Are you Doing your Part?
4/18/2011 6:00:00 AM
Early research indicated that if teachers had access to enough equipment
and training, classroom integration would follow. However, a variety of barriers - from personal fears to technical issues - may prevent the full integration of technology within a classroom. Keep these pointers in mind to
hold up your end of the "barrier bargain":
- Know what’s expected of you and of your students – traditional perceptions could be standing in your way
students to become technology experts in the classroom – encourage them
to share their expertise with their peers (and teachers!)
- Learn from your peers and students – use your peers’ progress to motivate you to learn more or to teach them
- Seek out the resources to help you – collaborate in online learning groups, develop a Personal Learning Network (PLN).
If you have access to new technology, some time to learn new skills,
training and support from your administration and staff, you’re set to
overcome the barriers that may be holding you back from successfully
integrating technology in your classroom.
