Keeping up with the technological changes taking place in our society
is an ongoing process, and it is not always an easy one. Schools
often do not have the resources to supply all classrooms with the
latest technology; however, as teachers, you face the challenge
of teaching students not only how the technology will affect their
lives, but also how it works and what it looks like. This issue
is devoted to showing you how new technological advances are affecting
the ways we view science.
Technology in the News
Technology can play a valuable and significant role in the classroom
and in society as a whole. Read three articles from The Washington
Times, The Salt Lake Tribune, and Scientific American
that discuss various programs or tools that are changing how we
live and learn.
