In this article, the award-winning Technology Leadership professor and founder of CASTLE Scott McLeod laments the current lack of technology fluency he sees in the teachers he works with across the country. Scott cites instances of educators who still don’t know how to work an Internet browser-despite being widely available and hugely popular for daily use for more than a decade-as well as many other tech-challenged examples.
Then Scott asks these questions: “What hope do these teachers have of providing meaningful, technology-rich learning experiences for their students? What hope do these leaders have of creating and adequately supporting powerful, technology-rich learning environments for students and staff?” He posits little to none.
