Lost in the Cloud: Attempting to Improve the Implementation of Educational Technologies
McCormick, P. (2020). Lost In The Cloud: Attempting To Improve The Implementation Of Educational Technologies
Technology is not leaving the schools anytime soon and it is our responsibility as educators to use it to the fullest potential. Research has shown that the relationship between technology and education is continuously growing and changing. Technology has been strewn throughout our school communities while teachers, students, families, and administrators flail to stay afloat. More resources are needed to allow teachers the opportunities to properly vet, set, and maintain the technology that students, families, and coworkers rely upon. Though the U.S. Department of Education Office of Educational Technology publishes periodic National Educational Technology Plans, employment of new technologies in education has had mixed results especially with regard to equitable pedagogy. Equity requires more than merely handing students the tools. The professional development program developed through this study was designed for educators to work in teams to improve the experiences with educational technology for a group of users. The program was intended for any schools that are finding their community members confused, frustrated, and lost in the cloud because of technology. (172 words)
