Does questioning school technology make teachers "technophobes"? - Courtesy of ASCD SmartBrief

Here is a great article for teachers as we move towards the 21st century and increase/change our
 
implementation in technology.
Fifth-grade teacher Kyle Redford has questions about using iPads in the classroom and adopting other technology, but fears being labeled a "technophobe." In this commentary, Redford writes about a time in which a group of students played Minecraft on their iPads, rather than complete an assignment. The incident and others like it indicate the need to think critically about the way education technology is used -- examining its benefits and trade-offs -- without fear of being labeled as resistant to change, Redford writes.
