The handbook goes step-by-step in convincing someone the power of technology and suggestions for how to incorporate it. I think the most important area is evaluation. How do you know that the technology is adding true value to your classroom and not just an entertainment factor? This is addressed in the quote below.
I hope it is not based on the function of a test score, but sadly that is often the direction of education. I am a strong believer in using technology in the classroom to make the learning relevant and personal for the students. However, sometimes my word and examples are not strong enough motivation for someone to consider thinking outside the blackboard. This is going to be one of the first resources I point other teachers towards.
