Do you have a lot of teachers who only use chalk, who take an almost perverse pride in avoiding any form of technology in their classrooms, from whiteboards to social media tools to even the humble website?

Teachers once had the luxury of opting to be technophobic but those days are long gone. As an instructional leader, you cannot afford to have members of your staff turning their backs on powerful learning tools that resonate with kids.

Tech-savvy superintendent Dave Tebo gives you new approaches and ideas for working with your technophobic or tech-skeptic teachers. Teachers develop aversions to technology because they got a “bad introduction” or once worked with “bad technology.” If it was too much of a chore or just too stressful and intimidating, they safely retreated to their tried-and-true teaching practices. Learn how to help your teachers appreciate how tech tools can make them even better teachers and create opportunities for them to differentiate and individualize learning in the limited time that they have.

Webinar Topics:
