The "unconference" way to help teachers learn about technology - courtesy of ASCD Smart Brief

This is a great post.  One of the challenges for technology in the classroom has been teacher reluctance to use the technology.  Here is a great approach.

Colorado instructional-technology director Monique Flickinger shares in this blog post her experience at her first "unconference" and offers 10 ideas for helping teachers learn about technology. Ideas include creating short podcasts showing teachers using tech tools with students, tweeting quick tips to teachers, teaching each grade level a different mobile application, and having tech "smackdowns" by taking time to share information on apps and Web tools at the end of staff meetings.
