I have to agree with the cons. It is system overload, especially when my students cannot even remember their password, and are hunt and peckers on the computer. I feel technology is great once you fully understand it, have trainings on it, practice, teach, and repeat until you have it. I love this class, but know how frustrating it has been for me, because I am not very technologically sound. However, some students, and educators are, but I feel that at this point all of this technology could be useful in some ways, but destroy others confidence. Also, I feel that their should be a certain age, or grade that a lot of technology is introduced. For example I can not have my 2nd graders put together a power point, but maybe in Middle School you can. Again, I feel this all depends on your cliental, knowledge, and willingness to not be afraid to fail.
