In “Connected Teaching” by Will Richardson, the author talks about how teachers use computers is oversimplified. They are just expected to find a way to make technology fit in with their curriculums. And when the author gave several hundred workshops on how to use technology for schools, he asked the district receiving the workshops how it improved their schools they couldn’t answer. I think that school districts need to think through, or attempt to think through, how technology will actually help to improve their schools. It doesn’t help for a school to just run the same way they would without technology. This is what matters to me in Will Richardson’s “Connected Teaching”.
