The writer gives practical suggestions for improved technological awareness in the classroom.
From the Paper:"Technology has come a long way from the days when major computers took entire floors of buildings just to hold them. Personal computers with more hard drive space than those big computers, palm pilots, tiny cell phones that fit in the palm of the hand these are just a few of the innovations in technology from the past few years. But schools are reluctant to incorporate this technology into their classrooms. With new technologies being developed every day, schools should be eager to incorporate technology into learning, so that children can grow up able to compete in the job market."
