This article was very eye opening to the ideas of technology in the classroom. Personally, I feel that technology in the classroom is wonderful. I feel that children must know how to use word documents and conduct internet searches. I do not remember the last time that I was asked to do a project that did not require the use of technology. The thing that amazes me is that children know more about technology than we do. As we saw in a video (in one of our classes) a baby rubbed accross the front of a magazine because babies now are part of the "Ipad generation." I think that we, as teachers, need to be aware that technology is rapidly changing. I feel that children need to know the basics of education and the history of education, but we need to prepare them for the world that they will enter. This world is surrounded by technology.
