Technology in Education

There is a gap that exists between the technology that will allow teachers to go further with their students, and the majority of teachers who have not yet implemented them. I have put together a 5 minute video detailing my understanding and experience of the issue.

Please do not misunderstand - this has no official sanction, and I have not done this for any organization. I am merely presenting my own opinion on the issue, and some findings from research I have performed.


The way I see the issue is that we need to get teachers to understand the benefits of integration of technology. Once they see how their work will change, how they will be better able to reach each student, teachers will happily adopt new technology. Training needs to focus as much on application of technology as it does on use of technology.

I hope you enjoy the video!
