Using technology in the classroom is one of those issues that makes it easy to be a fence sitter. It’s difficult to be 100% for the use of educational technology all of the time, when there are so many convincing arguments against it.

Whether they’re preparing for standardized testing or trying to catch up to their grade level, students today often need help outside of traditional classroom hours. In many cases, staying after school for tutoring sessions just isn’t an option, which results in vulnerable students getting left even further behind.
