cherrymp 02:03 fear of technology - things going wrong #eltchat
pysproblem81 02:03 #eltchat  - lots of factors - some economic/equip, some training, some generational, some cultural?
ShellTerrell 02:03 RT @cioccas: #ELTchat Teachers in my school claim lack of equip & facilities, but I work in the same place so they can't be the only factors!
cherrymp 02:03 fear is one factor i see around in #myanmar #eltchat
Shaunwilden 02:03 RT @cioccas: #ELTchat Teachers in my school claim lack of equip & facilities, but I work in the same place so they can't be the only factors!
ShellTerrell 02:03 Definitely 1 factor impacting tech use is access which is why I support the BYOD movement BRing your own device #eltchat

du_siemens 02:04 Is it my impression or there's an #ELTChat going on?
cherrymp 02:04 @Shaunwilden already ball rolling into probs Shaun #eltchat
cioccas 02:04 @ShellTerrell I'd agree , but many of my students don't have ANY devices #ELTchat

ShellTerrell 02:05 Agree! Proper training/ tech support though could combat this fear? RT @cherrymp: fear is one factor i see around in #myanmar #eltchat
cherrymp 02:05 @eleni_sav true bt wt if u r afraid or lack the support system to do that? #eltchat
pysproblem81 02:05 @ShellTerrell interesting to see how Twitter is starting to be affected by Brazil - always loads of #tt in PT #eltchat
du_siemens 02:05 @Shaunwilden What's the topic today, sir? #eltchat
brad5patterson 02:06 RT @elen_sav "When you are afraid of sth, you are supposed to do sth in order to overcome your fear" #eltchat >>> true in all circumstances

rliberni 02:06 Hi sorry just got here #eltchat
HerreraVeronica 02:06 @ShellTerrell @cioccas Some of my sts have some kind of device, but are not willing to use them for learning #eltchat
cherrymp 02:06 @ShellTerrell agreed - young teachers are willing to try out tech - bt dey need support from the system in #myanmar #eltchat
cioccas 02:06 @pysproblem81 Older (over 60) Ts at my school wouldn't agree about 'generational'  #ELTchat
cherrymp 02:07 @nlomax rightly said #eltchat
cioccas 02:07 @cherrymp @pysproblem81 Definietly agree on that one! #ELTchat
ShellTerrell 02:07 If you need help your moderators are  @Shaunwilden & I & everyone super helpful here as well  #eltchat
cherrymp 02:07 @ihbuenosaires yup yup #eltchat
cherrymp 02:07 @cioccas @pysproblem81 depends on the person too i guess - there're tech challenged ppl of all ages #eltchat
pysproblem81 02:07 @cioccas that's good to hear.... #eltchat
ihbuenosaires 02:07 Late arrival to #eltchat. Morning everyone, have I missed anything yet?  Why are teachers afraid of technology? is it?
nlomax 02:07 Sharing good practice is always tricky - not easy to pick up someone else's idea of a good lesson and run with it. #eltchat
ihbuenosaires 02:08 RT @nlomax: Sharing good practice is always tricky - not easy 2 pick up someone else's idea of a good lesson + run with it. #eltchat > this!
bealer81 02:08 #eltchat Does the technology not take over the class and become more important than the actual learning aims?

brad5patterson 02:08 Is there anyone (like @cherrymp ) who encounters school/govt policy against Tech ? #eltchat
ShellTerrell 02:08 @pysproblem81 interesting but when I can't access anything else I can manage to find wifi to send a tweet #eltchat
du_siemens 02:08 What I realized is that whenever I don't know how to do something regarding technology, I have a room full of students to help me. #ELTChat
cherrymp 02:08 hear hear > RT @ShellTerrell: If you need help your moderators are  @Shaunwilden & I & everyone super helpful here as well  #eltchat
nlomax 02:08 BYOD sounds like a good initiative - does it include students? #eltchat
ShellTerrell 02:09 Gr8 pt! Student willingness a prob RT @HerreraVeronica: Some of my sts have some kind of device but not willing to use 4 learning #eltchat
du_siemens 02:09 @eleni_sav Definitely. And students feel they are also part of it... #ELTChat
HerreraVeronica 02:09 RT @Shaunwilden: @bealer81 Not if it is used for a real purpose rather than just because there is tech in the room #eltchat
cherrymp 02:09 @bealer81 not always - depends on how teacher's use tech #eltchat

cioccas 02:09 RT @bealer81: #eltchat Does the technology not take over the class and become more important than the actual learning aims? < I'd hope NOT!
e_siemens 02:09 @bealer81 I guess it depends on the teacher. As I've read here before, there should be a balance for everything you do in your life #eltchat
cherrymp 02:09 @Shaunwilden long updates x-( #eltchat prob with transcript later
ShellTerrell 02:10 RT @alastairjgrant: RT @bealer81: #eltchat Does the technology not take over the class and become more important than learning aims? - novelty  factor?

cherrymp 02:10 @Shaunwilden well said Shaun - don't use tech for the sake of using it #eltchat

pysproblem81 02:12 @Shaunwilden in the same way as is happening in W.Europe, or were there different aspects to it? #eltchat #curious

alastairjgrant 02:12 RT @cherrymp: @brad5patterson #eltchat hello ab not getting support with DOS, etc? #eltchat - if anything - too MUCH "technojoy"!
ShellTerrell 02:12 Gr8 pt! RT @Shaunwilden: Not if it is used for a real purpose rather than just because there is tech in the room #eltchat
Shaunwilden 02:12 @ShellTerrell That implies they should use tech - it is ok not to use it #eltchat

pigletruth 02:13 @brad5patterson @bealer81 i don't think it takes over but we do spend a lot of time worrying about if things will work #eltchat
mcneilmahon 02:13 Tasks much more key than tch and teachers have enough probs designing and delivering good tasks, so why complicate with tech? #eltchat
shmsns 02:13 @ShellTerrell sorry, #eltchat means?
Shaunwilden 02:13 @pysproblem81 Probably the same but what struck me was there seemed to be more willingness  to try it #eltchat
ShellTerrell 02:13 RT @cioccas: Interesting research on this topic for Ts in general (as recommended by @eleni_sav) http://bit.ly/pnubg0 #ELTchat
cherrymp 02:13 @alastairjgrant in #myanmar tech in the classroom is largely ltd. to OHP #eltchat
brad5patterson 02:13 @alastairjgrant so how do you back off #technojoy drive from ze higher ups ? #eltchat
du_siemens 02:13 The use of technology in our classrooms shouldn't be seen as a big deal. Who doesn't use a computer nowadays? Be natural. #ELTChat
Shaunwilden 02:14 @alastairjgrant Isnt the novelty factor true any anything new? #eltchat

alastairjgrant 02:14 @Shaunwilden: Not if it is used for a real purpose rather than because there is tech in room #eltchat - think novelty factor inevitable tho.
du_siemens 02:15 @cherrymp Not sure? How can we teach a group of people without speaking their language? #ELTChat
alastairjgrant 02:15 RT @Shaunwilden: @alastairjgrant Isnt the novelty factor true any anything new? #eltchat - yep - and I don't think it's bad
Shaunwilden 02:15 @cherrymp I think thats because it doesn't always add to  it :-) #eltchat
ShellTerrell 02:15 RT @mcneilmahon: Tasks much more key than tch and teachers have enough probs designing and delivering good tasks, so why complicate with tech? #eltchat
cioccas 02:15 @Shaunwilden @alastairjgrant And aren't we over the novelty factor with lots of this now? #ELTchat

alastairjgrant 02:16 RT @cioccas: @Shaunwilden @alastairjgrant And aren't we over the novelty factor now? #ELTchat - not whenever sth new arrives in class!
eleni_sav 02:16 Is the passion about your role in teaching a factor? #eltchat
cherrymp 02:16 @cioccas depends on where you're  #eltchat #ipad is still a novelty to many teachers though they might have heard of it. wt pc scared r dere
du_siemens 02:16 One crucial point, in my view, about using tech is that we need to speak the same language as our students. #ELTChat

du_siemens 02:17 @yitzha_sarwono Definitely. And they do enjoy stepping up and helping us... #eltchat
cioccas 02:17 @cherrymp True, but I face reluctance with using any tech beyond OHPs #ELTchat
Shaunwilden 02:17 @pysproblem81 There are clearly  issues in Paraguay re access and cost mind #eltchat
alastairjgrant 02:18 RT @HerreraVeronica: @yitzha_sarwono @du_siemens @ShellTerrell yeah! digital natives vs digital immigrants #eltchat - my SS are natives!!
cherrymp 02:18 @alastairjgrant oh teachers - basically not becoz they don't want to bt they r not getting opps to try out things confidently #eltchat
theteacherjames 02:18 @du_siemens Do you mean literally the same language or 'techno-language'? #eltchat
seburnt 02:18 @ShellTerrell @bealer81 We have a CALL module here, but it's so 1995 in terms of programs or tech ideas. #eltchat
Shaunwilden 02:18 @alastairjgrant Wasnt saying it was,  I think we just have to remember that was might be the norm for us is new to others #eltchat
ShellTerrell 02:18 RT @HerreraVeronica: @ShellTerrell I think the best way is to SHOW them in practice that they can profit from using the tech #eltchat
Collaborative 02:18 #eltchat Tech Use Factors ist the question, not Non-Use
cioccas 02:18 @alastairjgrant Other teachers are reluctant (I have never got the hang of the OHP to be honest :) #ELTchat
mcneilmahon 02:18 #eltchat Many teachers want to feel super confident b4 doing things in class - but where to develop super confidence in a busy week?
du_siemens 02:18 @clikman Practice makes perfect, doesn't it? #ELTChat
HerreraVeronica 02:18 @yitzha_sarwono @du_siemens @ShellTerrell yeah! Consider the question of digital natives vs digital immigrants #eltchat
pysproblem81 02:18 @Shaunwilden less so when you consider using phones - more mobiles than landlines (not untypical this)- potential to develop this #eltchat
ShellTerrell 02:18 Gr8 question! RT @Shaunwilden: That implies they should use tech - it is ok not to use it #eltchat
du_siemens 02:18 @yitzha_sarwono Technology. People are born with iPads, iPods, iPhones nowadays... why should we ignore that? #eltchat
clikman 02:18 @ShellTerrell  @du_siemens  #ELTChat  Yes, bt it goes deeper. Fear of fumblng, exposure, loss of rhythm during lessns whn "tech goes wrong"
cioccas 02:19 RT @eleni_sav: maybe teachers feel they are losing their face in front of their students? #eltchat
ShellTerrell 02:19 RT @seburnt: Show by example.  Be patient w questions. RE How do we best combat student/ teacher reluctance to use tech? #eltchat

rliberni 02:20 RT @ShellTerrell: Like @Shaunwilden asked is it ok for EFL teachers not to use tech for learning/teaching? #eltchat
du_siemens 02:20 @clikman Don't think so. Don't you sit down to use your computer for at least an hour per day? Couldn't you be trying out things? #ELTChat
alastairjgrant 02:20 RT @mcneilmahon: RT @eleni_sav: maybe teachers feel they are losing their face in front of their students? #eltchat > we need to be humbler

mdsteele47 02:20 @mcneilmahon Tasks are key: frame what can be learned. But tools & talk are resources & help kids demonstrate learning. Tech=tool. #eltchat

newbiehelpdesk 02:20 #eltchat Tech Use Factors ist the question, not Non-Use
mcneilmahon 02:20 RT @eleni_sav: maybe teachers feel they are losing their face in front of their students? #eltchat > big factor IMO
seburnt 02:20 There should be the option, but with no understanding of how to use tech, Ts don't really have two options. @Shaunwilden #eltchat

Shaunwilden 02:21 @seburnt Yes thats a gd point, I just feel at times we seem to be forcing the tech issue when learning can take place w/out it :-) #eltchat
rliberni 02:21 @ShellTerrell ironically I rarely use tech in my f2f teaching #eltchat
ShellTerrell 02:21 RT @clikman:  #ELTChat it goes deeper. Fear of fumblng, exposure, loss of rhythm during lessns whn "tech goes wrong"

rliberni 02:23 @cherrymp  I agree to an extent but s'times they  really don't want tech at all esp. business stds in a 1:1 situation #eltchat
cioccas 02:23 I think it's fine NOT to use tech, but not so fine to dismiss it completely when it could benefit Ss learning and you have access #ELTchat
