Effects of Technology in the Classroom

Instructor: Tanieka Ricks
In this lesson, you will explore how technology provides effectiveness in the classroom setting. Be prepared to embrace how teachers and students are learning with the use of technology!

Our World of Technology

Tim rushes to class after a hard day of work. He immediately takes out his cell phone and iPad. As the teacher is preparing a lesson using the smart board, Tim sends a text message to remind his sister to turn off his television and informs his wife to withdraw $20.00 from the ATM. In today's society technology is everywhere! Engaging people, or attracting their attention, is important when attempting to keep students focused in the classroom. Technology in the classroom is an effective tool to engage students in instruction and prepare them for 21st Century skills.

Technology Improves Academic Achievement

The time has changed from using mainly textbooks, chalkboards, and lectures to increase student achievement. Classrooms are becoming more diverse, which requires teachers to be more creative with their approach. Educators have to acknowledge the variety of learning styles in their taught curriculum. The taught curriculum is the information from the subject that is taught to the students.
