First, I think your list is great, and I actually do agree with everything you said (at the risk of sounding too much like your introduction). I would add that those tech-resistant teachers we are always trying to win over to our side are not necessarily bad. Healthy skepticism is good, and being forced to explain why we should do something differently, or use a new tool, or even use technology at all is a good thing. We shouldn't take it as a given that a change is needed. Sometimes in education, we go with fads or trends when it might be better to see if what we're already doing is the best way to do it. Not always, mind, but certainly sometimes. I think it's good for us to have to explain ourselves to an audience that isn't necessarily in agreement with us about using technology (which is related to your point, too).
