During the spring 2011 semester in this Digital Tools class, I have undergone a series of revelations about technology in education. Technology is vast. Technology is powerful. Technology can be dangerous. Technology can be difficult to implement in the classroom.
We all know the sayings like ‘no pain, no gain’, ‘nothing in life is free’, ‘nothing in life worth having comes easy’. Using, implementing, and making technology useful in education is not easy, but when done right is so beneficial to the next generations’ learning.
Educators are charged with this task. Being a smart, resourceful, and educated educator is essential to the success of these endeavors. I know I have work to do. Good luck to you all.
