Technology The Way of the Future
In so many classrooms today, there are computers but most children are not accessing like they should.
Many teachers either feel they do not have the time, or they feel they do not have the knowledge needed for technology today.
Businesses are moving in the direction of becoming more technology based, schools however; are being left behind.
What are teachers to do? When most teachers are presented with something new, they try it for a while, then eventually it just sits and collects dust. Teachers need to be constantly kept up to date, and have continuous practice on applying technology in the classroom.
Each president has had their initiative to improve upon technology, but is that enough?
Another key barrier that affects our adoption of technology in the classroom is the factor of change itself. Some people adapt to change better than others.
All in all technology is here to stay, and advancing every day. What our students are learning now will be changed by the time they graduate.
As our society grows, so does its technology. In order to keep up with this growth many schools have a tech specialist.
Ultimately it is up to teachers, policy makers, districts and the board of education to keep the latest technology in the hands of our children for their success.
