Technology in the Classroom | 2019 Guide to Using Technology in the Classroom

The growing presence of technology in the classroom is directly correlated with students’ increased usage of technology outside of the classroom. Thanks to students’ familiarity with technology, teachers can utilize different types of technology to create a more diverse and inclusive learning environment.

The main

benefit of using technology in the classroom

is interactive lessons that engage students, foster in-depth learning, and encourage collaboration. Technology in the classroom also provides benefits for teachers, such as saving time by creating lesson plans online.

There are

pros and cons

for incorporating technology in the classroom. The drawbacks of technology in the classroom can include shorter attention spans for students and a decreased ability to finish intricate projects. Overall screen time in and out of the classroom can contribute to poor educational performance and weight problems in children.

In contrast, some

research on technology in the classroom

has demonstrated that it can improve

How technology has changed over the last three decades

Where this data came from

Music sales figures from 1995 to present are from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) U.S. sales database.

Home entertainment spending by format from 1999-2010 is from the Digital Entertainment Group (DEG) 2010 year-end home entertainment report, and figures from 2011-2016 are from individual DEG year-end reports. Data from 1997 and 1998 are extrapolated based on DVD player sales data from a 2005 DEG report. Industry-wide sales data is not available from 1985-1997. While tapes were dominant over DVDs during that span (DVDs were invented in 1995) we aren’t sure of tapes’ precise market share because of competing but less popular technologies such as LaserDisc.

Cellphone usage statistics for 2002-2016 are from the Pew Research Center Mobile Fact Sheet. Statistics for 2000 are from the Web at 25 Pew series — 2001 and 2003 percentages are interpolated. A single figure for cell usage was

Defining “Technology”

[Last updated June 2020.]

I spend a lot of time reading books and essays about technology; more specifically, books and essays about technology history and criticism. Yet, I am often struck by how few of the authors of these works even bother defining what they mean by “technology.” I find that frustrating because, if you are going to make an attempt to either study or critique a particular technology or technological practice or development, then you probably should take the time to tell us how broadly or narrowly you are defining the term “technology” or “technological process.”

Photo: David HartsteinOf course, it’s not easy. “In fact, technology is a word we use all of the time, and ordinarily it seems to work well enough as a shorthand, catch-all sort of word,” notes the always-insightful Michael Sacasas in his essay “Traditions of Technological Criticism.” “That same sometimes useful quality, however, makes

Internet – Kids | Britannica Kids

Every computer connected to the Internet needs to be protected from cybercrime. Cybercrime is when someone uses a computer to do something illegal. Cybercrimes include hacking, phishing, and the use of malware.

Hackers are users who break into computer systems. Once they gain access to a system, they may steal sensitive information, such as credit card numbers or personal information. Hackers may also expose company or government information that is meant to be kept secret.

Phishing is an e-mail that looks like it comes from a trustworthy source. The e-mail takes the user to a Web site that asks for personal or financial information. This information can then be used by cybercriminals to commit fraud, such as identity theft (using a person’s private information without permission, usually for financial gain).

Like phishing, malware can be sent through e-mail. It can also invade computers through Web sites, software, or hardware. Malware
