Why should we integrate technology into lessons and what is the purpose:
Technology should be integrated into the classroom because it is how people in the 21st century learn on a daily basis. The educational system has not changed over decades, we still have our students sit in rows at desk and write on paper to take notes while they listen to their teachers lecture. Children do more gaming, texting, chatting, looking up info on the computer than they do reading books these days and it is important for teachers to get students to learn more and enjoy what they are learning in a medium they are accustomed to. By utilizing different methods of technology teachers will continue to change the way the educational system is viewed and managed and bring it into the 21st century and out of the dark ages.
