One of our biggest challenges is when the technology doesn't work! Sometimes there are glitches (kids login and the program will be working, but then it will stop), which cuts into class time, and will make it difficult to conduct a blended class. But we've mitigated this issue by switching software programs to the ones we use now.
Another challenge is that sometimes teachers get stuck in the old school mindset: I'm the teacher and so I should know everything. It's a gradual process to change that mindset so that teachers not only feel comfortable with the technology, but also with asking their students for help with it.
