Why I Don’t Use Tech In the Classroom

I often hear my teaching colleagues say things like, “I don’t use technology in the classroom because there was that time I did try it and it didn’t work.”

Or, “I pressed a button and ALL my work disappeared and even my neighbour’s really tech-savvy son couldn’t get my work back!”

Wow. Imagine if we took that attitude about things like pens and pencils that fail? How often do we pick up a whiteboard marker and find it dried up so we can’t write on the board with it?

I made this short (and blurry) video to demonstrate my point.
