With the advancement of technology and the emergence of new technologies every 6 months it has become a budgeting nightmare for educational institutions to keep up with the new and emerging technologies, some of the newer technologies are so amazing that the educational outcomes can be enhanced.
Even if you are willing to spend the money the second aspect that needs to be looked at is professional training of the staff. Read the blogs and forums you see numerous questions on how to do the simple stuff with the new tech devices or software.
Is there a unique solution to this problem, I doubt. If one is inclined to take on the new devices and software for use and even willing to take the additional training, where can you find the time to get trained.
So how will one achieve the new learning strategies whether it be blended learning, performing differentiated instruction or flip your class room. The input one needs to achieve all of this is humongous and when you thought that you achieved some of this, there comes a better technology which is going to make your life a lot easier 😉 Enjoy life being a teacher.
