Toys, Tools & Teachers: The Challenges of Technology

R&L Education (2004)

Cambre and Hawkes offer a framework for thinking about technology as it impacts teaching and learning today. We look at technology through a trifocal lense: technology as teaching aid, technology as threat, and technology as progress. We trace the evolution of school technology briefly, leading up to the computer as the point convergence. From the toys they play with to the tools they learn with, we see that students are bombarded with things technological. This mushrooming of technology and how it is to be integrated into the classroom presents challenges that must be confronted so that, indeed, no child is left behind
