“What makes technology empowering, is how we use it.”

education-381909_960_720Technology should not be used just because it is there. Technology can improve communication between people, enhance thinking skills, make instruction more efficient and effective, as well as help to develop important life skills. Technology needs to be used purposefully and appropriately.  It is not just a fancy add-on, but a tool with which to help us understand the world. As an instructor, the goal is not to do it for you, or tell you what to do, but to empower you to do things for yourself. Technology can help us make our lives easier, but it definitely doesn’t replace human interaction.
