Young, J. (2010) Reaching the Last Technology Holdouts at the Front of the Classroom Chronicle of Higher Education, July 24

An interview with Chris Dede, one of the authors of the U.S. National Educational Technology Plan issued in draft form in March.

Although Chris Dede gives some useful tips, there is nothing in this article that will come as a surprise to most readers of this blog, except that it does provide some stats on how few professors in the USA are using even the most elementary classroom tools (blogs, videoconferencing, clickers). What comes over is the appalling state of the teaching profession in universities in the USA, although I suspect the same is true in many other countries, Canada included. How long will we go on not requiring training in teaching for tenure and appointment?
