Why Integrate Technology Into The Classroom?

A thought provoking article about education and technology by Jake Glasgow . The article provides a great list of reasons to use technology in the classroom.

I have linked one of the videos from the article which has young people talking about how they use technology.

The one thing amongst others that stood out to me about using technology in the classroom is the fact that regardles if we like it or not technology of the IT variety is only going to continue to grow. It is everywhere, all around us. If we ignore technology in our classrooms we are not allowing our students the opportunity to work and learn in an environment that replicates the real world, be it at home, socially or the workplace. As teachers we have an obligation to prepare students for this world even if we don't see it as our world.
