4 Reasons That Technology Might Not Be Helping Them Learn –

I know because I’m one of those “mistake-making teachers.” I’ve taught students of all ability-levels; I’m now serving as an instructional specialist in a 1:1 school district; I’m a parent of three amazing children who, like my students, have very different capacities for learning. My perspective comes from professional practice, 20/20 hindsight , and daily life experience.

Reflecting on my practice and the challenges both I and my colleagues face, I’m compelled to share four common mistakes that impede technology integration and thereby student achievement and growth.

I would add, “Not enough examples of technology use or final projects”. When describing the different types of projects a students can complete on the computer, if they haven’t seen examples of the final project, it’s hard to grasp what is possible with the tool.
