I get frustrated when people in industries who could benefit hugely from better use of tech bemoan the inequity in tech (I agree!) but justify their own inaction & non-participation (or defend persisting with crappy corporate proprietary software that tramples their interests) by saying adapting & learning is "too hard"... It especially bugs me to hear educators say this... sure, learning *is* hard. If it was easy... we wouldn't need educators. Get involved now to make it easier for others!
I'm equally frustrated by that exhibition and even celebration of learned helplessness...
@lightweight absolutely this. “Yeah but I'm not an IT person.” Well, I wasn't either, but anything can be learned.
