As we consider technology in education, we must consider the implications of that technology
on the learner and as well as the teacher. What role does technology have for these two
intertwined groups of people? I will show a correlation between the positive effects on both
the student and teacher related to academic performance, meaningful learning, and those
afflicted with learning disabilities. Furthermore, I will also show the positive effects on the
applications of technologies in the classroom. Combining education and technology creates a
more stimulating learning environment. In order to accomplish higher order thinking skills such
as critical and independent thinking, the application of technology and improved motivation
and attitudes, technology must be integrated into the everyday curriculum. This paper
describes some impacts of technology on education through the experiences of teachers and

Technological advances in education have been many over the last 50 years. As we look
back just 20 years ago, computers were not common place inside the classroom let alone in the
household. Imagine what students thought about using a word processor versus electric
typewriter word processors or even using the archaic manual typewriter. In contrast, today’s
students and children are considered “digital natives”. According to Wikipedia, digital natives
are described as having grown up with digital technology such as the internet, computers, cell
phones and MP3 players. Having a computer in every household as well as every school has
exponentially increased student’s awareness of technology and also broadened their horizons
about the global economy. Students today use cell phones that can do almost anything
imaginable such as getting real time updates on their bank accounts, download information off
the internet, watch TV or even make a movie! Imagine going through our everyday life without
the aid of a computer, it could be exhilarating and yet also cumbersome to juggle daily duties.
Today technology reaches well beyond the classroom to serve the needs of learners
with disabilities, rural inaccessibility or being home schooled have more options open to them
to learn and investigate. Through internet connection students and teachers have a portal and
connection to every part of the world. Computers can open pathways that stimulate learning
and help develop high order thinking skills, when technology is applied in a meaningful manner.
Histories of technological developments have often shown links between innovations in
industry and communications with improvements in educational methods. The proliferation
and success of web based curriculum at all levels of education is just the latest example of the
importance of technology to both students and teachers. The greater the reach of educational
