Technology in the changing world

Clip to ScrapBook #1

As we sail through the 21st century, technology in the classroom is becoming more and more predominant. Tablets are replacing our textbooks, and we can research just about anything that we want to on our smartphones. Social media has become commonplace, and the way we use technology has completely transformed the way we live our lives. As educators, we have seen firsthand the benefits of technology in the classroom. In addition to that, we need to recognize the importance of developing technological skills in students so that they will be prepared to enter the labour force once they complete schooling. The impact that technology has had on today’s schools has been quite significant.

This widespread adoption of technology has completely changed how teachers teach and students learn. Teachers are learning how to teach with emerging technologies (tablets, iPads, Smart Boards, digital cameras, computers), while students are using advanced technology to shape how they learn. By embracing and integrating technology in the classroom, we are setting our students up for a successful life outside of school. Technology is seen as a platform which has many benefits for students. These include; helping a student learn at their own pace, improves the rate of retention as well as makes the process of learning fun.
