Classroom memories from childhood recall images of dusty green chalkboards, manual pencil sharpeners and textbook covers made out of brown paper bags. While remnants of those old school days remain in classrooms around the country, many have been catapulted into the future with digital whiteboards, iPads for kindergartners and Chromebooks replacing textbooks. Technology abound, and with Generation Z's digital futures ahead of them, it's only natural that schools are embracing the role technology can play in enriching the learning experience.
And who best to support that movement than teachers themselves? According to the Pew Research Center, 92 percent of teachers said that the Internet has a "major impact" on their ability to access content, resources and materials, and many are finding that it helps their ability to interact with students. Even more importantly, instructors have reported that digital technology in the classroom has increased students' academic performance. (Cengage Learning).
