Why Do You Ask?

Sticklers



Do teacher-bloggers have a reason to be afraid? Is it worth the risk to implement web2 in the classroom?

Risk is a subjective thing --What is risky to one, may be habit to another. When "the boss" or the parent or the governing bodies view something as a risk to the chilllldren, but it is a habit to me, what is my true risk? It is my livlihood. As much as I want to do the right thing for my students, I have to do even more right by my family.

I wish I could find where I read, "More teachers will be fired for trying something new with technology in the classroom, than will be fired for their students not passing high-stakes tests."  Whoever said it, I agree.  What a shame.
