A show-stopper in a theatre is an act so striking or impressive that the show must be delayed until the audience quiets down. It is something positive, a WOW moment. But some shows are also stopped by BOO moments, when something so terrible happens that the show simply can’t go on.
What can stop teachers from using technology in the classroom? What are the BOOs that can bring down the curtain on teaching and learning through technology?
Here are three potential show stoppers:
The technology does not work and nobody is around to fix it.
The teacher does not know how to use the technology.
Appropriate material for use in the classroom is not available.
What can YOU do to make sure that the e-learning show goes on?
