The importance of technology integration in the teaching/learning process

       Technology integration in teaching/learning process is very important as it not only to get the interest of the students but it also get them to participate willingly. "Technology has indeed revolutionized the world. The current generation of students learns better, when they are taught with the aid of technology." said by Preeti Singh who is a grade three teacher. This thought is shared among the teaching most teachers in the profession. Children today are very technologically aware and every aspects of their lives are filled with it so in order to capture their attention in class technology integration is needed.
       "There is a growing body of evidence that technology integration positively affects student achievement and academic performance. The Center for Applied Research in Educational Technology (CARET) found that, when used in collaborative learning methods and leadership that is aimed at improving the school through technology planning, technology impacts achievement in content area learning, promotes higher-order thinking and problem solving skills, and prepares students for the workforce."
      The IMS (Instructional Management  System) this speaks to multiple intelligence and the best way of dealing with multiple intelligence. All the ways that the IMS says brings out or best suits the the different intelligence are based on technology.
