Whether one is at home, shopping, at school, or at work technology plays a major role in the daily lives of people today. As a future teacher I want to know how to prepare the young children in my classroom for the technology of their daily life.

    Technology can be looked at positively because it helps students learn in different ways, research things at any moment, and will benefit students in the future by associating themselves with it. On the other hand, technology can be manipulated in negative ways. Students may find themselves distracted by what is happening on their computer screens rather than what the teacher is teaching.
