21st Century Learners• Students will continue to use technology throughout their lives. Technology will continue to change and the students growing up with it will continue test, try, and experiment with it. Teachers will need to keep up with the changing technology to meet the needs of the learners.
• Students will collaborate with other students on projects through the internet. The other group of students may not even be in the same school, state, or country. Technology allows students to explore the world from one location.
Changing Technology – In Closing• Technology continues to change the way teachers teach. As technology evolves, so must the teachers.
