The Math chair at our site doesn't "do" e-mail.
This gives one some insight as to how much support can be expected for
integration of technology into my curriculum. I brought a small grant
with me and that began a mini-lab in my classroom with three HP
Pavilions, a laptop and a projector.
The advice I need is how to invite my tenured colleagues to see the
importance and versatility of meeting students' needs academically in
this way without abandoning the 'textbook of old.'
Those who do say they want computers in the classroom expect them to
appear magically.
As a new teacher to this district, it is important not to acheive
"know it all" status-at least not right away.
Having administrative support has made all the difference, but I've
already been accused of "blazing my own path" when all I really want
is to work on an effective team that offers everything to enhance
student achievement.
Why continue doing the same things that didn't work before, just more
of it? Our district has tunnel vision right now and the light at the
end is API scores.
What advice do you have for me?
