I think it is so important to incorporate technology into the classroom. Students can benefit from technology for it is a new way of thinking and using different materials per lesson.There are so many challenges that arise from using technology because: what if there is a child with special needs and they have a hard time understanding technology physically or mentally. Another challenge is that some children may have a harder time incorporating new ideas and ways to be successful in the classroom with technology. Using a Smart Board could potentially be the hardest concept to understand for they are more pencil and paper rather than hands-on. However, other students may flourish form using technology because it is so engaging and new. Technology is sweeping the world away, and almost everything can be found on the internet.
I am going to take everything I learned in Ed Tech and use it in my own classroom. :)
