Education and Technology - ... Therefore, based on the quantitative nature of the study, this investigation is better outfitted to present a wealthy account of the practice of teaching and learning with wireless laptops (Skevakis, 2010) within K–12 classrooms, as opposed to a qualitative or mixed method investigation of the phenomenon (Leedy & Ormrod, 2010). Thus, this study does not suggest that teaching and learning should be limited exclusively to wireless computing. Significance of the Study The significance of this proposed study will add to the literature by illustrating a more inclusive picture of the universal practice of instructing and learning with wireless computing (GaDOE, 2008, Wellings & Levine, 2009; Weston & Bain, 2010)....   [tags: Education, Computer and Technology] 1467 words

Overuse of Technology - ... During this last visit, my sister was focusing so intently on her phone that she did not care to look around the room at the people that were in front of her.

Writing Technology - Writing Technology When I was assigned to create a format for writing to take place on, I was shocked, to say the least. This project was unlike any I had encountered before in my years at school. I began to tax my brain up and down to come across a suitable way to write.

After all, as Walter Ong says, "The first script, or true writing, that we know was developed among the Sumerians in Mesopotamia [...] around the year 3500 BC." Ideas flew through my head about which medium to carve, such as wood, or even bread....   [tags: Writing Technology Technological Essays]
