Computer Tech or Educator?

In this post Dr. Joshua Kim discusses the discussions edtech people and academics don’t have with each other. He says that edtech people see themselves as educators, whereas, academics see them as technologists. I have a Master’s in Education with a concentration in instructional design. It always makes me angry when a professor refers to me as “tech guy” or a “computer guy.” I respect them skills computer technicians have, but I am not one of them.
