  • To begin with, forget the technology, and focus on what you already do well.
  • Then, look at what you think they could improve on.
  • Any suggestions made must improve at least one of the things that have been identified.
  • The next thing for you to focus on is that any new resource must first be practiced – but not necessarily in front of your class.
    • confidence is the key to success,
    • set a deadline for learning,
    • tie it all in with some real purpose and target one of your aspirational goals.
    • ensure that any use of technology has a valid reason behind it.
    • learn about a resource with a fellow colleague,
    • make sure that you and the staff know where to get support from.
    • make sure that it is relevant to the you.
    • make it personal and meaningful will show that you understand student needs, and that the resources really make an improvement.
