Tech in whose hands?

Having been amongst the “twittersphere” for almost a year now and diving in amongst a dedicated network of teachers who are passionate about learning and technology and continue to be the minority, it makes me wonder if the take-up of tech will continue to be an uphill battle with many educators.  Will the teachers who are learners continue to adapt and respond to the needs of students and will the reluctant others ever be budged?

Is it time to turn the focus onto students?  Should the tech dynamic teachers be focussing more on the development of students as leaders and less on staff? This is not to say let the teachers be, but perhaps if we empower our students with skills and tools, it will become a necessity not a choice for staff to step up!

Just a thought.
