Technology and quality

The more technology becomes interwoven into the fabric of teaching and learning, the more we begin to rely on it to help us teach and help students learn. We see how technology can provide access to a multitude of resources, in an instance. Technology becomes, for some, the means to enhancing education. It is the equalizer. It levels the field. Technology becomes available, pervasive, ubiquitous and transparent.

Does technology impact quality? Just because we have access to technology may not improve the educational experience equally. Some may be distracted by technology, some may become flustered.

Can technology improve quality? Perhaps. Does quality determine technological uses? Perhaps. We can use technology to improve education. It all depends on how we use technology.
