Today, we live in a high-tech, global economy. Technology, the Internet, the World Wide Web, search engines, hand-held electronic devices, and social media all put us in touch with people, places, information, and ideas -- instantly, and all the time. Technology has opened access to the world and provided a world of resources for both teachers and students.
Our world and our expectations are changing rapidly. The skills our students need to succeed are dramatically different today from what students needed 10 years ago. To prepare our students for success in the 21st century and transform education for the 21st century, we need to rethink learning and take advantage of all of the resources available to us.
One step in transforming education is welcoming technology into the classroom -- not as a tool, a resource, or an add-on, but as an essential element in the process of teaching and learning.
