Philosophy of Technology in the Classroom
Integrating technology in the classroom is beneficial in helping students learn. Firstly, it provides interactive learning in which material is customized based on the learning needs of the students. The desired result is to have a classroom that does not have a “one size fits all” approach. Instead, the teacher is able to lead each student through various individualized lessons with the use of integrated technology.
Secondly, technology can be used to create and explore. Students can create educational games. Games motivate students and make learning enjoyable. They also help students focus better. Students can explore new learning applications. Learning applications provide new ways for students to take ownership of their learning. Overall, integrating technology in the classroom is beneficial in multiple ways to students’ learning process.
