Using Technology for Instruction and Assessment

Technology has permeated almost every aspect of many people's daily lives. Generally, its benefits have outweighted its challenges. In some areas, such as cell phone use, people's integration into their ongoing activities has been relatively natural and seemless, with people large-scale overcoming obstacles to seek its benefits. In other areas, such as educational technology use, integration into regular practice has required concerted work, with its benefits largely dependent on its appropriage use and deliberate efforts to situate its use within the many constraints of educational settings.
