The purpose of technology in education is to increase student learning and understanding by better engaging the student, increasing the efficiency of the student's learning, and making the learning more relevant to the student’s lives by showing the practical application of the instruction. To make effective use of technology in education we need to give educators not only the tools of technology itself but also the knowledge of how to use it so they can pass those skills to their students in such a way that the students find a use for those skills in their own lives.
Technology should be viewed as more of a learning resource than a teaching resource. It is less a tool to enhance, extend, and support teaching, and more a tool to enhance, extend, and support learning. It should be used to give students an opportunity to find their passions. Technology is a tool for students to capture, create, and share their learning and experiences. Technology should not be an implementation of software and hardware to do the same old tasks but rather an opportunity to look for new uses and methods. Technology is not an add on or enhancement, but fundamental to education.
