Overcoming Barriers to Classroom Technology Integration
Kelly, Daniel P.
Educational Technology, v55 n2 p40-43 Mar-Apr 2015
Technology-savvy teachers are often the "go to" staff members in schools for their colleagues' technology issues. These teachers are seen as leaders within their schools with respect to technology and often do not understand their peers' difficulties when bringing technology into the classroom. Understanding both the reasons teachers may be reluctant to incorporate technology and ways to address their concerns can only add to the learning environment and professionalism within K-12 schools. This article summarizes the barriers commonly experienced by teachers regarding the integration of technology into their classrooms, with the purpose of assisting teachers to become leaders within their schools to help other teachers meaningfully incorporate technology into their curricula.
