Technology in the classroom

  1. 1. Technology The Way of the Future
  2. 2. <ul><li>In so many classrooms today, there are computers but most children are not accessing like they should. </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>Many teachers either feel they do not have the time, or they feel they do not have the knowledge needed for technology today. </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>Businesses are moving in the direction of becoming more technology based, schools however; are being left behind. </li></ul>
  5. 5. What are teachers to do? When most teachers are presented with something new, they try it for a while, then eventually it just sits and collects dust. Teachers need to be constantly kept up to date, and have continuous practice on applying technology in the classroom.
  6. 6. <ul><li>Each president has had their initiative to improve upon technology, but is that enough? </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>Another key barrier that affects our adoption of technology in the classroom is the factor of change itself. Some people adapt to change better than others. </li></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><li>All in all technology is here to stay, and advancing every day. What our students are learning now will be changed by the time they graduate. </li></ul>
  9. 9. <ul><li>As our society grows, so does its technology. In order to keep up with this growth many schools have a tech specialist. </li></ul>
  10. 10. <ul><li>Ultimately it is up to teachers, policy makers, districts and the board of education to keep the latest technology in the hands of our children for their success. </li></ul>
