Chalk Talk: Balancing Technology and Education
Students are continuously plugged in at home and at school, but is technology being utilized effectively? If the instructional components aren’t taken into consideration, technology can become a hindrance rather than an aid. In fact, some of the best classes take students outside or off campus to explore the world around them. Technology is best used as a supplement to rather than the focus of core academic learning. Students thrive in hands on scenarios and solving real world problems through first-hand experience. As students progress, it's important for parents to see if the balance between technology use and other methods is being struck.
