Great article!

Did you know younger teachers are no more likely to use tech than those who have been in the business for a while?

  1. Wow! Just goes to show that assumptions aren’t always correct! I think if everyone took your class they’d be more apt to put more technology in their class. I’m not just sucking up, but I already feel more comfortable and that I’d be more apt to add things into my lesson that used technology. Maybe in some of our other classes as well we should have to incorporate technology in at least 33% of our lesson plans or something like that to encourage us to already start thinking along those lines and not have technology be an after thought to our lessons.

    • Interesting concept. As an ESL teacher, I tend to think of technology as a great way to differentiate. And I think it really is just a way of thinking… I’m glad you feel more comfortable! That means I’ve done my job…

  2. I, too, am surprised to hear this. I definitely had assumed that younger teachers would be more likely to use technology. The article suggested that one possible reason this isn’t true is a lack of instruction on how to integrate technology in the curriculum, which makes me wonder how many teaching programs require classes on using technology. Out of curiosity, I looked up the requirements for MATESOL (or equivalent) programs at five other universities, and not one of them listed any kind of technology course as a requirement… Interesting.
