In preparing for the presentation tomorrow, I got some clarity about possible reasons why, on the one hand, I have been a luddite in relation to technology in my classroom, and on the other hand, I have not at all rejected new technologies in other aspects of my scholarly and personal life.
I'm glad that this happened--now I can ask myself some questions about my teaching practices and goals and how they relate to my larger reading and critique of technical and instrumental ways of being in our society. My larger critique of our society definitely does (and should) inform my work in classrooms--but I think that it has, for a while, functioned as a fairly strong barrier to even thinking about new technological tools in my teaching. I think I can open some of this up, now, a bit.
Yes, I'm leaving this all vague--have to save something for the presentation tomorrow.
