Teachers using technology

Exploring Elt Teachers Reluctance Towards Technology

Jonathan Acuña is an ELT Instructor & Trainer. He was hired to train a group of teachers in Costa Rica. He starts by addressing an interesting question, Why were/are they so reluctant to using technology?

Read his blog post and go over some of the highlighted concepts: 
comfort zone 
develop technological competences 

1. What do you understand by "comfort zone"?

2. What type of "technological competences" do you think teachers need to develop?

3. Do you think it is possible to self-train in order to develop these competences? If not, how do you think this could be done?

4 Have a look at this image. What message do you think it is trying to convey? Do you agree?

5. What about you? How many hours of computer training did you receive?
What do you think about technology integration to classroom settings?
