Having a hard time trying to get your teachers catch on to a new technology? All you need is one teacher who loves it, and as we all know, teachers talk!
Once upon a time, about 3 months ago, one of my teachers asked me "How do you do that?" referring to me using my dual screen. I put their computer on dual screen settings and I taught my teacher how to use the dual screen. She didn't end up liking it, however, another teacher walked into her room (when she did use it) and wanted to know how to use dual screen. This past week, I had a teacher tell me that 3 other teachers wanted to know how to use dual screen!
Being a tech coach, its sometimes easy to wonder if anyone in your building wants to use more tech! My advice: look for the one or two tech leaders, walk in and talk to them personally, and see what problems they would like to resolve. If you can fix one teacher's issue or make their work load easier with tech, the other teachers will eventually catch on!
Go on, Talk to your teachers! You'll be glad you did!
