Educational technology is the application of technology to the teaching and learning process. A technologically literate student accesses and acquires knowledge, exchanges ideas and opinions, solves problems, and creates, innovates and expresses themselves through the skillful use of a variety of technologies.
As technology filters down into every aspect of our society it is essential that students not develop technological skills in isolation. Technology, more than any other discipline, has the ability to be integrated throughout the curriculum. By providing access to information, opening pathways to communication and facilitating personal understanding, technology supports learning in all subjects.
