I agree that it is vital to make the teachers aware of the upcoming educational technology and hey need to be trained and equipped with these resources. Therefore, the responsibility lies on the institution to equip the teachers with latest educational technology. sufficient training will increase their levels of engagement in ICT. Its true that even a small number of people can be a source of inspiration for others provided they share their good practices with each other. Most of the teachers complain about he amount of time spent on planning the IT lesson and prefer to teach with traditional ways of teaching
hi Colleen, I am Nishat Kashir and working as a Mathematics curruculum coordinator. While training the teachers the barriers in the successful implementation of ICT in teaching are their incompetencies, lack of moyivation and confidence in using new technologies. A lot of training and motivation is required.
Would you kindly share the kind of barriers you see in your institution?
With your interest in Online Whiteboards, I recommend you take a look at Wiziq's virtual classroom and authorstream's power point presentation platform. Both are web based platforms, have a bunch of features and free basic service.
