Five ways to improve technology in education

I've just been reading 'Five ways to improve technology in education' posted by Todd Ritter on downloadsquad.

Todd reports on a recent Technology Expo conference he attended and describes the reactions of teachers to what are some pretty mainstream technologies.

His five basic recommendations to teachers are:
  • Stay informed
  • Focus on the learning process, not the end product
  • Work with IT professionals who understand education
  • Become a user
  • Don't be afraid of change
If you are reading this, then you are probably well up on most of those, but I still think it's worth a read and worth printing up for your staffroom too.

I would also recommend subscribing to the downloadsquad rss feed as I've found it a really valuable source of breaking news technology information.
