Teachers as Learners

Teacher as Learner� Journey - The following document is a breakdown of a broader article; as taken from �Professional Development in Technology: Catalyst for School Reform� by Patricia E. Holland, Houston, Texas 2001 Journal of Technology and Teacher Education, 9 (2).

This continuum should not be interpreted as linear process, only as a healthy guide to more discussion about teacher's current understandings and knowledge of ICT's.
