The are teachers I have connected with who struggle with the thought of going from paper to a digital classroom. It all sounds so easy when you read blurbs on ‘How to …’ However, following the ‘How to…’ can be a daunting task.
What are the barriers to jumping on board?
I recently read an article, which like many of them do, described the importance of ICT in the classroom as improving teaching and learning (Bingimlas, 2009). I wanted to encourage you to think about how you feel towards ICT in your classroom. Is it a challenge you could do without? Do you embrace the opportunities for ICT in your lessons? Do you feel pressured? Do you see learning being transferred to higher levels?
I thought I would pop a snippet of what I found interesting on the barriers of ICT use in the classroom here for you to consider and reflect on your own thoughts.
