This article went over negative and positive effects of technology in the classroom. I liked how it did not favor just one side of the argument. After reading this article I believe that technology is a great way to teach students how to learn the different material.
Teachers now have to know more material in order to teach their students. I feel like teachers should know their material before they try passing it on to other students.
Technology promises to be an ever important part of our lives from now on.
The benefit of our culture being a capital market is that new technology is constantly being improved leading to lower prices for the public sector on yesterdays technology.
This particularly benefits schools as they do not need the most advanced computers out there to do the things most students need to use them for. Allowing them to purchase old systems for discount prices.
This article stated the limitations for smaller school districts and those educating students at home. They sometimes lack the funds to initiate a proper technology plan and many times must resort to lesser technology.
Although they may not be able to initially afford the new technology, they make due by making compromises on initial quality.
