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.
