I made this presentation at the 2015 Association of Educational and Communications and Technology conference.
Avoiding Red Herrings: Technology Support that Works
Information and computer technology has been incorporated in teaching and schooling for several decades. Despite on-going efforts to provide both technical support to maintain functional systems and support for educators to integrate technology in their classrooms, much teaching and learning has been unchanged by the availability of technology. Technology acceptance is described as a model that has potential for improving the effectiveness of technology planning efforts. Several practices that appear to have been effective in improving technology use are described with evidence coming from informal observations of educators who participated in the practices.
