I have been having a lot of conversations recently about all the things that could and do go wrong with technology. It is true that technology is imperfect and often frustrating. However, I believe that if we focus on the opportunities afforded by technology and less on the obstacles, our brain tends to notice the frustrating aspects less and less. There are too many wonderful things that can be learned from technology to let the everpresent nagging issues stand in the way of taking advantage of these opportunities.
So I ask you, do you focus on the opportunities or the obstacles? Do you say What If or What if we don't...?
What are the consequences of not doing something? Is there a bigger risk to our students if we don't give them these opportunities?
