Teachers and students often utilize technology and social networking in their everyday lives. However, in the past, technology has not always improved achievement,” said NMEF’s Director of Research and Evaluation Dr. Beth M. Miller, in a MNEF press release. “As this report makes clear, we are truly at a crossroads in the potential for technology to enhance student-centered teaching and learning.” According to the report, technology alone is not the answer, but technology has the ability to greatly supplement student learning. Three key areas are addressed in the findings: technology can help teachers address individual needs and steer students toward proper resources; technology can help prepare kids for life and work in the 21st century global economy while enhancing knowledge and skills valued by employers, but not usually noticed by standardized testing; technology can help shift responsibility for learning back to the student, allowing them to personally organize their own learning process.
