Where is it and How can it help?
There is an abundance of differing opinions of when technology should be introduced to children. No one has a truly definitive answer but there is no denying our children need to learn the ins and out of technology. The technology market is expected to reach $3-trillion this year and our educators along with the help of parents, have a duty to prepare today's youth for the ever-changing future of the workplace. Graduation rates are at an all-time high of 83% but, only 38% of students are college-ready! How can technology assist with today's learning and not distract the students from the necessities of the classroom? With the help of three outstanding foundations: The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, The Michael and Susan Dell Foundation and EDUCAUSE , the educational authorities now have a set of pillars to help design "personalized learning" for every student to help prepare them for the future and technology is a vital component of helping make this happen.
