Abstract

Innovative use of information and communication technology in education is a topic that has received a lot of attention both in public and academic debate Innovative practices have been communicated and visions for sharing them have been around for years, however, the large scale adoption of such practices has not yet been achieved While highlighting and sharing best practices may be an inherently positively motivated attempt, teachers enthusiastically explaining their innovative ICT practices may be met with even resentful attitudes from colleagues Discussion focusing on praising innovative ICT teaching practices as good ideals may leave those teachers whose current teaching isn’t up to this standard out of the debate This paper aims to further the understanding of teachers who currently lack courage to try new ICT approaches in their teaching and how they could be supported in finding ICT practices that they are able to flexibly utilize in their teaching
