Technology in the Classroom: From Distraction to Engagement
Technology and changes associated with it in education are often assumed to be positive and in the best interests of the student. Many higher education institutions have begun to require students to use mobile computing technologies as a means to enhance the learning experience. However, some argue that technology can interfere with the learning process, even negating the benefits it should otherwise have. A few interesting questions remain: Do modern technologies really belong in the classroom and to what extent? Should technology be banned from the classroom? Since technology use concomitantly appears to be inevitable, how can we take advantage of its potential for positively influencing classroom activities and enhancing student leaning?
