Technology has had a profound impact on virtually every aspect of modern life, including how people learn and teach. In the last 20 years, technology has completely reshaped the educational landscape, particularly the k-12 classroom and teaching environment. Time-tested teaching methodologies are now being combined with (and in some cases replaced by) laptops, tablets, interactive smartboards, collaborative software, wearable technology, and other digital tools that promise more effective and engaging lessons than ever before.
Principals, administrators, and other leaders and decision-makers in education also use technology to help improve student outcomes and drive positive change within their respective organizations and the educational field as a whole. For example, technology has made it easier for administrators to collect, compare, and analyze data into meaningful, actionable reports that create more productive and efficient learning environments for all.
