How About Getting Teachers Devices First?

Had an ah-ha moment today during preparations for teaching high school. I’m sitting in a meeting with veteran and new staff and I am *the only one* with a laptop taking notes, and trying to follow along with a PowerPoint that I wish had been sent to staff before the meeting.

So imagine all those big budgets for student devices, but now add a clause that says that teachers get the devices first *all summer long* before any adoption plan in a given school or district.

So if teachers don’t live in a digital world on the same devices, then how can they expect their students to?

    Bravo! I agree. There are still too many teachers who shy away from technology.
