Then and Now: How the Classroom has Changed with Technology

New technology tools and resources are making it easier to engage students in complex studies at all age levels helping to foster a robust and interactive learning environment. From the integration of computers in every classroom to the use of webbased resources to support lessons, technology is changing how children get information, process it and apply it to their lives.

Paragraph A: Teachers are no longer at the center of the classroom in tech-driven learning climates because technology allows students to play a more active role in their education pushing them to be active thinkers about presented information, make critical choices and execute skills more efficiently. Teachers play more of a facilitator role guiding students through planned assignments and tasks with instructional support.

Paragraph B: Teachers agree that technology boosts student motivation in the classroom. Not only are they eager to take on a task, but they are able to receive instant feedback through many computer programs giving students a sense of accomplishment. Paragraph C: Technology touches every part of a child's day and will continue to do so throughout their future. Early exposure to computer programs and technical applications prepares them for future projects that are more complex and high-level.

Paragraph D: In addition to increased motivation, teachers agree that technologydriven lessons help to facilitate collaborative learning environments where students interact with their peers providing academic and technical support to their classmates.
