Educational Technology

Our kids are "digital natives" — technology is part of their everyday lives and many are adept at keyboarding, word processing, Internet research skills, multimedia production, social sharing, and navigating interactive e-books. Technology is proving to be valuable in support of reading and writing instruction, universal access to instructional materials, assessment, professional collaboration, and home-to-school communication. Some parents, educators and researchers say that technology is a game changer in how we teach and how children learn.
