Teacher resistance

Allison Needham, a fifth-grade teacher in Virginia, says it often comes down to time and resources. "Teacher resistance can be an issue, but it's not necessarily because teachers are afraid of technology. Demands are constantly put upon teachers, draining time and energy that they'd rather spend on actual instruction," she explains. Last year, Needham was awarded the National Science Teacher Association's Vernier Award. While she's received national recognition for her innovative uses of technology, she also feels overwhelmed at times by all of the options available. "I've put off learning about some things that I'm very interested in because I simply don't have the time to learn about them well enough to use them in the classroom," Needham says.
