In recent years, classroom teachers have had been able to access computers, streaming video, real-time video. I began using the internet during my sophomore year of college, so over the years using this resource has become second nature. What do parents think of students using technology in educational settings? Responses from parents have been more negative than positive. Parents see computer use as a reward for learning, not a means of learning. As I sit and type, I realize that no one taught me how to blog, do online research or pay my bills using only a keyboard. Are pens and pencils becoming obsolete? What do we teach kids in this age of constantly changing technology?
Teaching needs to be on top of technology.
