A time of No Choice This generation of kids in our schools is the first not to have a choice about technology. Most of us grew up in a time when technology was an add on , and for many of us, we still see it as a choice, especially in education. Will Richardson

AT CTJ, WE are experiencing change.
The Stages of Change http://www.flickr.com/photos/talweblog/2546207562/ 3. Self-Doubt Reality bites – bringing uncertainty, frustration, anger and depression. 7. Integration Internalization and incorporation of new attitudes and behaviors into everyday life. 6. Search for Meaning The new situation becomes real. Questioning what has happened and why? 5. Experimentation Dealing with new reality. Energy as new attitudes and behaviors are tested. 4. Acceptance Letting go of old attitudes and behaviors. 1. Shock Numbness, immobilization. Mismatch between expectation and reality. 2. Disbelief Denial/minimization of the change or event. Carries on as before. Self Esteem Time
