Never Too Late to Learn
Sommervold, Cate; Goodwin, Melissa
Learning & Leading with Technology, v39 n7 p20-22, 24-25 May 2012
Some schools in South Dakota have gone one-to-one, and other schools have one computer cart for two grade levels. Some teachers refuse to use their computers for anything but email, and others are incorporating web 2.0 tools into their project-based learning curricula. But one thing that is consistent across the board is the need for technology-related professional development that is aligned with and embedded in the curriculum. In this article, the authors discuss how one professional development program uses low-pressure coaching and real-world practice to inspire teachers to embrace new technologies so their students will follow their lead.
