Te@chThought has compiled a simple, but honest list of the five bad tech habits teachers can fall into.
1. Not using technology enough.
There are a lot of reasons why some teachers may be slow to adopt technology. To begin, it's easy to get comfortable with curriculum, which makes it harder to develop it. Possibly, a teacher may not see the value of incorporating technology into curriculum. Additionally, technology - or change, in general - can be intimidating, and unfamiliar.
The solution: This issue gets to the main driving force behind our district initiating the Instructional Technology Coach program. We offer embedded professional development, which, at its core, is intended to teach, coach, and assist teachers in the meaningful implementation of technology into the curriculum.
