Monday and Tuesday this week Iâ€™m co-teaching an ActivBoard class with Doug Taylor. The participants in the class are all receiving new Promethean ActivBoards, projectors and HP laptops for their rooms. Many of the 40+ teachers involved in this 2 day training have little to no experience with integrating tech in their classrooms. I have mentioned several times in the last year that I have had reason to be optimistic about shifts in attitudes about change and integrating technology and I noted today that that seems to happen every time lately that I work with teachers in sessions like this one.
This has really not been the case for years. I could tell so many â€œhorror â€œ stories about attitudes and lack of vision ( as Iâ€™m sure you could too).Â The teachers today were enthusiastic and open to new thinking and gave me more reason to be optimistic.
