With the following information posted above I believe that technology is highly affecting everyone. Technology is becoming an everyday usage for people. With that being said, because it is becoming an everyday thing teachers are learning how to use it more in there lessons plans. I believe it is necessary to use technology in classroom settings with this generation. Because kids are growing up around it, this is becoming the best way to keep their attention.
This also goes for parents, now-a-days parents are using technology to entertain there kids. I have seen multiple parents give their child their phone while running errands. I am not saying this is bad, I am saying this is the new generation and we as future teachers need to develop ways to bring technology into our lesson plans.
Here are a few ideas I would use as a teacher to incorporate technology:
1. Video recording themselves readings and listening to themselves and following along
2. Downloading apps that help children with math and reading
3. Teaching children how to blog which will help with communication and spelling
