Speak Out: Teachers trapped, troubled by district technology

"And you throught your had computer problems" by Flickr user mandyxclear

As education professionals in the 21st century, we rely more on computer-based technology to help us improve teaching and learning for our students that ever before. Unfortunately, CEA members throughout CCS experience the first-hand effects of unwieldy, unresponsive district technology on a daily basis. 

Often times, our district’s technology causes more problems in our classrooms than it is intended to solve. CEA understands you are experiencing technical difficulties in your building as well as at home trying to incorporate district-managed hardware, software and data systems into your educational practice.

The CEA Blog wants to know:

What are some examples of how district technology is currently negatively impacting or affecting your ability to do your job at your workplace or at home?
