Abstract

In this digital age, technology is infused into most aspects of our lives. Educational technology has flowed into our businesses and informs how we educate our children. The way we learn and communicate has shifted. New online resources have changed the way we process information. Technology can help inspire young minds of the future. Media-savvy students utilize online resources and tablet readers for their studies and prepare themselves to be technologically proficient professionals. Skeptics still believe that technology cannot replace careful instruction of a master teacher. This paper clarifies the delicate balance between the implementation of technology into the classroom and when teachers should rely on traditional aspects of instruction.
