Technology In The Classroom

Technology in the class room and how it benefits teachers!

In any classroom technology can be beneficiary.

In classes all over the United States, more than likely, they have at least one computer in each classroom. It makes teaching syudents quicker and easier. "If I'm a teacher and one of my students says, 'What is the Iditarod?,' I can go in and find a picture immediately, show the kids the dogs, the route. I don't have to say, 'Well, tomorrow we'll talk about it.' Computers have made learning so much more real-time ... you don't lose that teaching moment when everyone is tuned in" (Just). Research makes it easier and more efficient to teach students faster than without a computer.

Healthier?

"Many products purchased for use in schools, including cleaning products, furniture, computer equipment and other electronics, have potentially adverse impacts on indoor air quality" (students). The more people rely on technology, the less paper we have to use. Therefore, at least people get some better air quality.

Would you be passing if you didnt have anything to look your grade up on?

Grades

Grades can now be sent home via email. This makes it easier for the parents of the student to take charge and push their child to try to accomplish better. The emails that teachers can send home can be about anything like behavior, grades, skipping, and etc.. This makes it less time for trying to get ahold of parents and more time teaching in the classrooms. "Parents can log on with a password and monitor their child's grades, schedule, standardized tests and assignments, and even see if they've been tardy or had a discipline problem" (Just).
