“So you’re over 40. Been teaching for more than half your life. And your school has decided to introduce technology into the classroom. Computing devices in the hands of all your students. What do you do? Bury your head ostrich style? You’ve faced new fads in education before and this whole 1:1 approach will go away. You rave and complain to all who will listen? With all your experience and expertise, someone is bound to listen and take notice of you? Or you simply retire and head for a quiet life up North or down South, wherever your dollar stretches the furtherest.
Or worse still. You are 20 something, a so called digital native. Everyone expects you to intuitively know how to introduce technology into your teaching. But your teacher training did not stretch to full immersion of technology in the classroom. Best you follow your older colleagues and find a quiet life away from teaching!”
