IT versus Teaching

Responding to George (Via Mark’s edtechblog.) Mark Ahlness responds to Doug Johnson on the issues of reliability/security versus creaitvity/experimentation, adopted software versus teacher creativity, and “established best practices” versus teacher experimentation. I haven’t pointed to a post like this in some time… these are the issues that used to occupy me as a site tech coordinator who had one foot squarely in each camp – teaching and IT. Now, sadly, I’m a bit further from both.
