With the world of technology ever evolving around us, it is inevitable that the educator must keep up. The incorporation of technology within the classroom has become an essential part of planning and executing a lesson. Technology, when used correctly, can serve as an infinite tool for differentiation, assessments, and various other typical classroom tasks. It is our job as educators to use any and all available technological resources in an effort to ease both the job of the learner and that of the teacher. Throughout several parts of this unit, students will use electronic devices to access media outlets that will enable them to access additional information for research purposes and supplementing reading.
