Technology in the Classroom

Judith Kinz
Instructional Technology Specialist

"Every student needs the ability to navigate through the 24/7 information flow that today connects the global community. For students to thrive in a world enabled by information technology, we must give them the skills to make sense of and use the information that engulfs them. They need to know how to learn new skills as quickly as technology creates new challenges."

"To live, learn, and work successfully in an increasingly complex and information-rich society, students must be able to use technology effectively. Within an effective educational setting, technology can enable students to become:

  • Capable information technology users

  • Information seekers, analyzers, and evaluators

  • Problem solvers and decision makers

  • Creative and effective users of productivity tools

  • Communicators, collaborators, publishers, and producers

  • Informed, responsible, and contributing citizens"

Like a pencil, a computer is only a tool. It is how we choose to use this tool that defines its effectiveness in education.
