In the 21st century, we have technology all around us. As teachers, we have ITSE and CCSS that we have for what students should be able to do at each grade level in terms of internet safety as well as competency in using it for educational purposes. However, how far should we go to use technology in the classroom? And how can we be sure to be fully knowledgeable about what programs to use? To start exploring this topic, I did some research. You can read about my findings by clicking below!
These are some quotes from a source that I used that capture some key points of the ideas found.
Although there is still much to learn and do, I am confident that technology integration is a crucial aspect of time with students in the classroom. In addition, time spent using technology and the activities conducted should be regularly reflected on to ensure that students are meeting their best potential in learning today.
