Technology in the Classroom
Have Facebook, Twitter, and other social media made the “How I Spent My Summer Vacation” essay obsolete? Today’s students are so digitally connected that they seem barely able to function without their mobile devices. Not only is technology changing the way students communicate and interact socially, but it is also changing the way they learn.
The SIRS Issues Researcher database is continuously updated with the latest articles documenting trends on the use of technology in the classroom. In addition, these Leading Issues challenge students to explore the controversies and challenges that these new technologies present: Cell Phones in School, Children’s Online Protection Laws, Cyberbullying, Cybersocializing, Filtering Software, and Web 2.0.
