Getting There is No Simple Task

Floating down a river seems like a pretty simple task. Fun, even! But, despite the metaphor of the river, making effective use of technology is not a simple task. In this chapter four issues are identified which point out the difficulties in reaching large--scale, effective uses of technology for teaching and learning. These issues are Productivity: determining what is effective; The Costs: keeping the investments in technology as a constant flow; Learning/Training: new time commitments for keeping up with changes; and Understanding Change: how changes are infused into and throughout an organization.

Perhaps "getting there" is more like "shooting the rapids." It demands our complete attention.
