Hi Mike, Enjoyed reading your 9 worst practices--as well as the additional ones posted by readers. These certainly reflect the issues that we in iEARN have encountered over the past 22 years. One additional one is to assume that the introduction of ICT in the classroom and particularly the connectivity of the C (Communications) can be introduced without resulting in major changes in how teachers teach. In addition to pedagogy and technology training, attention needs also to be paid to the methods and style of teaching--something often much harder to change than dealing with new tools and content. Becoming the facilitator of student learning, rather than the expected font of wisdom, is not an easy transition to make for an educator, yet the power of the technology puts learning directly into student hands. Thanks for the observations and the ideas they stimulated. Ed
