This past week when our class asked questions and spoke to each other about why digital media was important in the classroom was a topic I felt that should be discussed more in depth. I think digital media is important in the classroom because it is a way for students to interact with the information they are learning in a visual way. However, I also think that the digital media can be abused or not used efficiently while working during class. Students need instruction to learn the new and upcoming programs to learn and digitally write. Each computer program is different, and some design and writing programs are getting more complicated. This requires more training from teachers and professors to offer help to students in class. Computer programs for projects are helpful and show a creative and visual way of the information learned in class for each individual student.
Recently surfing the internet about digital writing I found an article about the iPad 2. It was interesting to explain the benefits and new practices that schools are using to incorporate technology and the iPad because it is easy for students to use that are different ages.
