Personally, I believe there are may benefits to technology in the classroom. It can increase student engagement, support collaboration, allows creativity, accomodates different style of learners and it is future focused. Like all things, there needs to be a balance in terms of how much technology is used within the classroom. I see technology as a resource, not a hinderance, and for me it is important that I model how to use technology as a tool that supports learning. When students have access to technology, they are a part of a global community. With guidance, students can learn to research and become critical thinkers. They can share ideas with others around the world, as well as learn from others around the world. As teachers, it is our responsibility to facilitate proper use of technology (copyright laws, red flag websites etc.,). The generation of children being born now are called Alpha generation. They are children born at a time when technological devices are getting smarter, everything is connected, and the physical and digital world are coming together. As they grow up, new technologies will become part of their lives, their experiences, their attitudes and their expectations of the world. How we frame it, is based on our personal background and for some individualts, they believe in traditional methods of teaching.
