Is technology the wave of the future? Society says "YES" when it is convenient and educators respond with a multitude of answers. The use of technology in today's classroom has become a controversial curricular topic for those inside and outside the classroom. Why? I am sure that many of the same arguments used today against the use of technology in P-12 education are similar to those used during the past 100 years. Imagine the thousands of educators a hundred years ago that said, "The use of this new invention will destroy the writing ability of our children. There will be no need to write letters. Our children will become lazy because they will prefer using this telephone device rather than being polite and properly visiting their neighbors." I am sure that Mr. Bell was extremely concerned that he was destroying the future of America with his invention of the telephone.
