Responses to NO TECH

I’d like to thank Scott McLeod for yet another excellent post, this time addressing a concern of a school board member who opposed the use of technology. His post, “Which Students Don’t Get to Use Technology, Then?” makes some excellent points that I will read again and again as I gear up for more upcoming discussions about the lack of tech adoption in my kids’ schools. I’m hoping Scott doesn’t mind being a guiding light for me.

In my situation, as a parent, my questions and concerns are usually dismissed and I’m seen as a rabble rouser.  Since I work in the edtech field, I usually have significantly more knowledge about ed tech than most of the administrators at these schools. It helps immensely  when I can come in and refer them to real teachers and admins who blog about the concept and who are very well respected. So, thank you, Scott.
