TechnoTeaching: a review

One person I really value in my PLN is an educator named Nicole Ponsford. She wrote a guest post for the blog last summer when I ran the #TeachingHighlight series.

When she got in touch to say that she’d co-authored a book, it was no surprise to me that the book had started from a modern day educator story. Along with US educator Dr Julie M. Wood who had met Nicole via social media – they decided to write a book and so ‘TechnoTeaching” was born.

The book proposes to help teachers who are lacking in confidence in using technology to a place where they might be more willing and able, through supported activities, to use technology to support and enhance learning in the classroom.

They refer to the ACOT (Apple Classrooms of Tomorrow) study completed in 1997 and more recent pieces of work such as blog posts by Jeff Dunn of Edudemic as a means to explain how teachers should be what they called ‘TechnoTeachers’ – teachers who embrace the use of technology in the classroom.
