  12. 12. HOW should we integrate technology? • According to Wong and Henriksen, technology professors at Michigan State, we should make technology in our classes “fashionable” and “attractive” which, in turn, will encourage students to become interested and get involved in their studies.
  13. 13. WHY should we integrate technology? • We endorse any instructional approach that inspires students to imagine possibilities, helps them create an existence that is more worthwhile and beautiful, and, in general, provides opportunities for them to experience how “cool” ideas can be.
