  • Technology in the K-12 Classroom By Thanhtruc Hoang
  • It is important that teachers use technology as a device to help students learn in a fun and interactive environment.
  • Performance  “Studies have shown that students using technology as an education tool become more engaged in the process and more interested in growing their knowledge base -- in some cases, to the point that they don't even realizing they're actively learning.” ---Scott Steinberg
  • Grading the Digital School  “The digital push here aims to go far beyond gadgets to transform the very nature of the classroom, turning the teacher into a guide instead of a lecturer, wandering among students who learn at their own pace on Internet- connected devices.” --- Matt Richtel
  • Building self esteem “A related technology effect stressed by many teachers was enhancement of student self esteem. Both the increased competence they feel after mastering technology-based tasks and their awareness of the value placed upon technology within our culture, led to increases in students' (and often teachers') sense of self worth.”
  • Getting the Information… “Educators of years past have always yearned for a way to make information easily accessible to students. With the advent of computers and the internet, access to information became easier.”
  • Keeping track of students learning… •“One way of making sure students focus on the lessons instead of the distractions provided by new technologies is by providing a way for educators to track the students' activities using the technology chosen by the school.”
  • “The benefits of technology in education reach across all grade levels, from K-12 all the way up to colleges and universities. “
