As schools infuse more technology into our classrooms, we often hear from people who question whether this is a good idea.
It is not just the expense that is questioned, though technology can certainly be expensive. People want to know if reliance on calculators and spreadsheets reduces computational skills in students. They want to know if too much screen time hinders development of social skills and fine motor skills. And they question whether students actually learn when they can just do a Google search for answers.
