Transcript of Technology in the classroom

Technology in the classroom
Why technology?
YOU SEE THEM EVERYWHERE. THE TEENAGE GIRL WITH THE IPOD, SITTING
across from you on the subway, frenetically typing messages into her
cell phone. The whiz kid summer intern in your office who knows what
to do when your e-mail client crashes. The eight-year-old who can beat you
at any video game on the market—and types faster than you do, too. Even
your niece’s newborn baby in London, whom you’ve never met, but with
whom you have bonded nonetheless, owing to the new batch of photos that arrive each week.
