Here and Now: Everyday Technology in the Modern Classroom
During a time when technology seems to be a driving force in both business and education, it is not uncommon for some individuals to become frustrated with its dominant presence. While we can surely boast that it is the “wave of the future”, we must also be concerned with the impending loss of simplistic, traditional processes. It is inevitable that the Digital Age will continue to grow each day. However, leaders and educators must discover how to harness this incredible energy and use it in ways that will not only be advantageous them, but beneficial to their employees and students as well.
