Literacy should be promoted and gained before students are released to interact with the technology in the classroom. If students are set free to learn with technology, the teacher must make sure that students are utilizing technology in the proper way. I think technology assist teachers to create fun and interactive lesson plans. I think that students could benefit more from technology than not using it at all. SMART boards help teachers in their instruction time. Teachers are managing their instructional time with technology in the classroom. Technology has more pros than cons.<br />
