Your school has recently purchased several new technology tools for classroom use. As you observe the teachers in the classroom, you see that many of them are not using the technology on a regular basis. Discussions with several faculty members indicate that there is a lack of knowledge regarding the tools and a desire for training. What would you do as an administrator to encourage the use of new technology tools?
Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
First and foremost, identifying the factors that make the teachers not to use the technology would go a long way into solving the problem. Since it is known that the teachers lack knowledge and desire to teach, as the Administrator, i will do two things. First, i would introduce sessions where the teachers would be taught on proper use of the availed technologies. secondly, i would ensure that the teachers are motivated through various incentives such as rewarding those who are proficient in applying the technology at the end of year. This would ensure that the teachers have the required skills and motivation to teach students using technology tools.
Hope this did assist. Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions. I will be pleased if you make me your private tutor.
