This is one of my favourite quotations, though it's one I cut out of my conference talk for lack of time.
Using classroom technology successfully (ie. that it produces lots of learning) doesn't depend on the equipment available; it doesn't depend on having a lot of knowledge about technology; it depends first and foremost on the teacher having a positive attitude, on thinking (on believing!) that technology can and will work for them.
I also cut from my talk, because I already had two quotations by him, Doug Johnson's 4 A's of designing technology-enhanced projects:
- Assignments that matter
- Activities that involve
- Assessments that help
- (Teacher) Attitude is all
