Students today are technologically savvy. If our schools and teachers don’t keep up with our students we will be left in the dust. There are many concerns when it comes to using technology in the classroom. First you have to have teacher and school adminstration buyin. Then we have to be sure students are using the technology safely and correctly. We owe a lot to the technology innovators everything from Apple, PC, iphones, tablets, the Cloud. Modern classrooms are technology wonderlands equipped with smartboards, wireless internet, and more.
