Empire High School, for example, had replaced all their textbooks with iBooks and Apple laptops in order to increase student engagement. Many teachers did in fact believe that the students felt more strongly about their school work after the experiment (Rotstein). Incorporating technology into curriculum can increase students’ willingness to learn. Because the majority of students enjoy using technology, adding it to school would be effective in increasing their will to learn. Some schools believe that technology can become a distraction, however.
Technology also gives the children different life skills. These newly taught skills would be very useful later in their lives. Having knowledge on how to type, how to research and how to gather information on their own puts these children at an advantage when looking for a job in the future. Having the skills to use a computer efficiently will work to their advantage. Research showed that 92% of all Americans under the age of 60 use a computer in everyday life.
“There is a pressure on schools to adapt to the new technology, the same impulse drives that teacher, like anyone else, to use computers in their everyday lives” (Culling, F, Cedric, H, Nusrat, 2009, p.18). Having knowledge in technology helps professionally. This knowledge coupled with a good education provides a new range of opportunities.

We are in the Twenty-first century, innovate learning technology will help guide our students in the right direction. Technology is link to real-life education ad the workforce. Many jobs now require some form of knowledge on computer skills. By adapting technology into the learning process, teacher, students and parents will see positive improvements in academic performance and real-life work skills.
