Looking forward to the Brock University Conversation Cafe'
What role should technology play in education? 
Technology is showing an increased presence in our classrooms. Some feel that it provides an innovative way to teach diverse learners and is a necessary method and medium for 21st century learning. Others say it takes away from skill development in areas such as art, music, movement, communication, social adeptness and patience. They are also concerned that easy access to information through computers will negatively affect learning skills and big-picture thinking. Where should technology stop and real-world education start? Have students started to rely more on technology and less on teachers? Where exactly should we draw the line and is there even a line anymore? Are some kids being left behind?
