Skills and Knowledge for Future The world is changing rapidly. Innovation may be the only thing that precedes technology. New discoveries, inventions and algorithms continue to take society in new directions. Students who are not fully immersed in the technological revolution will be ill equipped to handle the future world. Students entering college without computer skills are at a clear disadvantage and need to catch up with their technologically proficient peers. Children and teens are using computers and technology for fun, gaming and entertainment, but teachers and school administrators should not overlook their educational benefits. Bringing computers to the classroom helps ensure students are ready for the world ahead. Computers in the classroom help create adults who will find their place in a technologically advanced society. Not only do computers in the classroom assist teachers with individual lessons and expanding students’ knowledge, but they are also preparatory tools for the future.
