  2. 2. Other than having technology-centric classrooms, the use of devices may work as an aid to enhance learning “(…) the digital technology now coming, more or less rapidly, into our classrooms – if used properly – can help make our student's learning real, engaging, and useful for their future.” (Prensky, 2010)
  3. 3. “A teacher that can be replaced by a machine should be” SUGATA MITRA Today‘s students want to learn differently than in the past. They want ways of learning that are meaningful to them, ways that make them see—immediately—that the time they are spending on their formal education is valuable, and ways that make good use of the technology they now is their birthright. MARC PRENSKY
