Papert’s (1993) prediction of computers transforming education proves to be true with the demands placed K–12 schools to integrating technology in instructional practice. He argued that the fundamental concern of change for a number of educators is the tension between is the integration of technicalizing and non integration of technicalizing within the instructional practices. Thus, teachers must first develop some level intersubjectivety (Augustin & Huang, (2002) by understanding, accepting the technological demands, and develop strategies to use available technologies in their instructional routines.

For instance, cameras can be used to train future teachers, broadcast to students at home, and deal with bullying. Having cameras in a classroom environment are beneficial for students, teachers, parents, and schools because they hold teachers accountable, help students improve their behavior, and evaluate teacher and student interactions.
