Teaching Using Technology
Benefits Of Using Technology in Education
Teachers are faced with the challenge of preparing students for a world that we cannot foresee yet. As technology grows, the world becomes ever more interdependent and complex. Schools have the responsibility to prepare students for changes in cultures, technology, and the economy. Students need to be prepared to enter a world following graduation ready and able to use and implement various technologies. In the 21st century, teachers will begin to incorporate technologies in the classroom thus reaching more learning styles than ever in order to keep pace with the changing technologies and expectations outside the classroom. Students need to be able to think critically, be innovative, and work within a group if they are going to be ready for future professions. Technology is an ever changing phenomenon, and if used efficiently can open up learning and make it relevant to student lives allowing for more comprehension than ever before.
As a result of this course, my hope is that teachers will have a better understanding of the benefits of technology and gain a greater understanding of the technologies available to today's teachers.
