Today’s digital native students are born into an age where technology is pervasive. Their interactions with digital devices and applications begin at an early age. It’s not surprising, then, that schools are shifting their traditional teaching tools from books to electronic devices, from chalk boards to interactive whiteboards – implementing technology to foster learning with greater impact. But integrating these technology resources into the school setting can be challenging.
