Overall Total: $1,998.32Narrative:It is very important for the teacher to be coordinated with the technology in theirclassroom. Since the teacher is in charge of the other decisions in the classroom, he or sheshould be able to have a say in what technology gets used in their classroom. Firstly, they aregoing to be the ones to use it. There is no use getting them expensive pieces of technology thatthey have no use of.

teacher will use in the class, or else it was a waste of funds. In addition, the technology in theclassroom should be something the teacher understands how to use and feels comfortable with.If the teacher is not comfortable with the technology and does not understand how to properlyuse it, it will not benefit the students at all, it could be distract the students and waste valuableinstruction time. Also, technology is one of the teaching standards. A teacher should know thestandards and should be able to help pick out items that will help students reach these standards.If someone who is not in the classroom and does not have an understanding of what thestandards are and general classroom procedures supplies the technology, the fancy computers,tablets, and smart boards may be incompatible with the teacher. It would be a waste ofresources. It is common sense for the person who would be using the technology most often tobe a part of the selection process.
