Educational Technology and Its Effective Use
Puckett, Rhonda
Journal of Educational Technology, v10 n3 p6-11 Oct-Dec 2013
Technology is becoming more and more prevalent in the American classroom. Students are becoming extremely knowledgeable of computer programs, iPads, and their applications are in an increasing manner. The reasoning behind the push for such technology in the classroom is for students to become accomplished twenty-first century learners, college- or career-ready upon graduation. The motivation of this research is to determine the effectiveness of technology in the classroom. Questions used in this inquiry include: What subject areas can technology successfully be integrated into; is technology an effective source of individualized instruction to create a successful learning atmosphere; and what types of technology are most effective in educational settings? Concluding evidence determined that technology can be highly effective with various forms of implementation in classrooms ranging from kindergarten to twelfth grades. Further research would be helpful in the various ways that technology can be implemented more successfully for individualized instruction and whether particular types of technologies are superior to others.
