You’re right Maha. Just a theory I was developing called Vygotskian Causality Syndrome. The truth is the instructors were actually tired of being told what to do like they were trained seals. Almost any crazy reason for bringing tech into their practice could have at least started a conversation but starting with disrespect and do-it-or-else orders froze the whole process. If you can believe it, my “quality” as a trainer came from being non-judgmental and TOTALLY unconnected to the chain of command above us. Working with apprentices I know about tolerance for people in the act of learning and when to stand back and let them work it out themselves.

Top-down leadership can get things started, but to keep improvement moving forward, schools need to work from the inside out.
