How Do You Motivate Teachers to Use Technology?

It is great time to be alive. Technology is constantly changing the way we do things, making it easier than ever to stay organized. I have always embraced change, but there are many teachers who are still resistant. It's hard to sell technology without one key ingredient: reliable Internet access. Without the necessary bandwidth, any talk of a 1:1 initiative is impossible. At my school, we have been promised an upgrade this summer, but I'm still wondering how to push that motivation into overdrive in September. I found several resources online and hope you will share your own stories in the comments section.
