Fifth-grade teacher Kyle Redford has questions about using iPads in the classroom and adopting other technology but fears being labeled a "technophobe." In this commentary, Redford writes about a time in which a group of students played "Minecraft" on their iPads rather than complete an assignment. The incident and others like it indicate the need to think critically about the way education technology is used -- examining its benefits and trade-offs -- without fear of being labeled as resistant to change, Redford writes.
