Where do I start?

I’m not a technology person.

I’m not tech savvy.

Where do I start?

My answer? Anywhere. It’s not about replacing what you already know. It’s about extending it. Making less work for you. Giving you back time and making documentation a silent process.

Evaluate what you DO know. Make a list. What CAN you do that involves technology?

Check email? Pay your bills? Use a calculator?

All great places to start. Be your own teacher. Scaffold your learning.

You’ve never used a Smartboard? Pick up the pen. See what happens.

You’re a scientist. You do something and observe what happens. Try to replicate it. Now, change a variable. Just one. Don’t get too carried away.

Now stop. You’ve done enough for today. Come back tomorrow. We’ll do another lesson.
