Shelley Owen commented yesterday that a teacher said to her that “[technology] is not in our contract.” Wow. It’s one thing to say as an educator, “I understand I need to do this but I need more help and/or support.” It’s another to say, “That’s not part of my job.” I don’t know the specifics of the situation, but I do know this:

The longer you pretend as an educator that technology is not core to how we learn and teach these days, the more you highlight your lack of relevance (and the more likely it is that you will be replaced by someone else who understands this).
