21st Century Classroom Technology – All Grade Levels
“People in the 21st century live in a technology and media-driven environment, marked by access to an abundance of information, rapid changes in technology tools and the ability to collaborate and make individual contributions on an unprecedented scale. To be effective in the 21st century, citizens and workers must be able to exhibit a range of functional and critical thinking skills, such as Information Literacy, Media Literacy and ICT (Information, Communications and Technology) Literacy.”
In order to prepare a technologically literate society, teachers must model the effective and practical uses of technology with students, parents and society. Effective uses of instructional technologies allow the teacher to break down the walls of the classroom, to access a wealth of information, to share ideas, to communicate with parents, and involve experts in their students’ learning.
