Engaging Students through Technology

Today’s students are more tech-savvy than ever before. It’s almost like they are programed to learn a different way than traditional past methods. It simply makes sense to integrate technology in the classroom since it has become so integral to the world outside of the classroom and today’s students are accustomed to it.
