Change is a terrifying thing. Teachers depend tremendously on tried-and-true methods of doing their job, and even things that will improve their productivity and quality are not always easy to adopt, because of the transition phase. Although this is a normal process, its not easy or comfortable to get through it, but as Tech Facilitators, its our job to help them through it...patiently and with encouragement.

Adopting 21st Century teaching and learning methodologies can be a worrisome experience, and pushback is not uncommon. Check out this great blog post by Lisa Nielsen that outlines some managable and excellent steps to getting on the journey.

Test yourself: where are YOU on this transformative journey?
