    Abstract

    As the saying goes, doctors make the worst patients. Can a similar comparison be made to teachers being less than ideal students when it comes to changing how they teach and/or accommodating new technologies and approaches? Perhaps such a sweeping general statement would be overly harsh, but in the context of learning about harnessing technology to enhance learning, it seems that some teachers are hesitant or resistant for improvement in this area.
