Teachers and Technology

In order to prepare students to be college or career ready, teachers must give them the tools necessary to be successful.  Technology is changing so rapidly that teachers must explore and learn the latest tools and programs.  It takes professional development and sharing of information to keep up with this rapid growth.  Students and teacher will lead and learn together. Real life problems and projects will be the wave of the future classroom.  Technology is here to stay and teachers must get on board.

I Pads, iPhones, active boards, and tablets will be the tools used in the classrooms.  Time is moving on and if teachers are not using all the tools available, they will be left behind and so will their students.

Project base learning is a very effective way to integrate technology into the classroom.  Students can perform in-depth investigation by creating websites, blogs, videos, and web tools.  Students learn better by experiencing it hands on and technology can increase academic achievement, critical thinking, collaboration, and motivation.  The technology that we are using today will be obsolete in 2-3 years.  Therefore, time is not waiting for education to incorporate technology.  Technology is dictating how students will learn and work and the direction that schools need to take

Success in one area encourags more success in the other.
