How Can Technology Improve Student Learning?

Technology alone cannot improve student learning.  Teachers must allow their students to explore through technology and become global peers that solve real world problems.  Teachers must receive the training and professional development that is essential to support the technology or it will be an electronic text book.  Our children must learn to collaborate with peers and teachers to combined ideas explore new paths.  This is an exciting time in education for our students, but can be a scary time for teachers because things continue to grow and change so quickly. 

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
