Education has always been important to me; it is essentially what has allowed me to be where I am today. Throughout my own educational career, technology has changed almost every aspect of our lives, including the way we learn.
I remember the first time I heard about the “World Wide Web” back in elementary school. I think I was in third grade. I can’t remember the rest of the sentence she said, but I very distinctly remember my computer teacher saying “World Wide Web.” It sounded so funny to me, and I didn’t like it because I didn’t like spiders. I couldn’t comprehend what this meant. Was there a web out there somewhere? Little did I know this short phrase would change our lives so dramatically! But I digress.
Today at all educational levels, technology makes it easier to explain and take in new information. Rather than list facts myself, here is a wonderful graphic that cites some of the statistics surrounding technology and education.
If you’re a teacher, how do you use technology in the classroom? If you’re a student, how does your teacher use it? Or how do you wish your teacher used it?
