My name is Debbie Turner. I have been teaching for 19 years. I currently teach second grade at an elementary school outside of Atlanta, Ga. Since beginning my career in education, I have witnessed many technological advances in education. We have grown from writing on chalkboards to writing on Promethean boards. Our students are “digital natives”. They are very comfortable with technology, as it has been a part of their lives since birth. They are exposed to it everywhere. I feel that technology plays a crucial role in education. We have to prepare our students for the future, and the future does include technology use.
