Technology as a Tool to Support Instruction By Lynne Schrum

This is the link to the article http://www.educationworld.com/a_tech/tech/tech004.shtml

I think this is a really interesting article. I agree that just implanting technology into classroom, is not going to help. Teachers need to be trained on how to use the technology to benefit their students. I agree that if students are using a computer for a class assignment it encourages them to be active, instead of doing nothing. However, teachers must make sure that what they are doing on the computer is productive. Another point made in the article, which I haven’t thought about before, is that computers can create students to be assessed and produce different types of answers, rather than just paper and pen tests. Technology is useful and beneficial, when used in the right sense and productively.
