-How can you get people interested?

  • Make the teachers leaders - teachers share with other teachers (people are turned off by the top-down approach)
  • "Technology minute" at faculty meetings - teacher shares what's going on in their classroom
  • "Technology teacher of the month" - bulletin board in the front of the school - teacher to teacher awards
  • Show the end product - offer support in the classroom for the technical pieces
  • Show and tell at faculty meetings
