When I read about resistance to technological change, I frequently see it couched in terms of fear, as in this article. I think that's a myth - the image of people, including teachers, cowering from growth and development because they're afraid of change doesn't sit well with me, and doesn't reflect the experiences I've had talking with them. To say people are afraid to change, it seems to me, is really to say that you can't really explain the advantages of the change you're proposing, and so it's somehow their fault. It isn't, you know.
