It seems Miguel Guhlin is experiencing a spot of malaise.

Perhaps now more than ever there is the danger of the forward thinkers being do far in advance of the status quo - the real deal - that they're off the scope of most teachers. I have friends who teach in high schools and still struggle to make basic use of computers. They avoid using technology in their lessons because they know perfectly well that there will be a technical hitch somewhere along the line and they will have no idea at all how to remedy the situation, thus derailing the whole lesson. I have heard all their reasons/excuses for not improving their own technical literacy and I have some sympathy. It all comes down to the T-word... T I M E. There is so much that has to be learnt and achieved that improved IT skills doesn't rate very high on the scale.
