Before developing your five ways to address change suggestions consider the following:
  • Considering the list of fears you brainstormed in the previous assignment, what are the common objections and fears your peers or administration may have to changes in technology?
  • How can you assess if the the objections/fears are valid? How can you educate your peers in determining if these fears and objections are valid?
  • How can you inspire peers who share similar beliefs and interests to apply changes in technology to their classroom or students' learning?
  • How can you get peers out of the "Resistance" phase into the "Exploration" phase?
