Technology is our future; therefore if we are to prepare our students for the future we must incorporate technology daily in all aspects of the educational process.
Although I am not a regular classroom teacher I daily see teachers use technology in their classrooms. Using technology opens the world to our students. Technology provides our students with real time learning experiences, whereas a textbook often contains outdated information once the book is published. Our students' exposure to information on an infinite number of subjects is instantaneous. And that is only one aspect of technology that is so wonderful.
There are so many ways technology can be incorporated into the classroom's learning environment. Depending on the grade and subject matter various apps are available to broaden or strengthen the students' learning. Technology is vital to the educational experience.
