Proposal for Presentation

In this digital age, many educational institutions have pushed for a deeper integration of technology into the classroom. But is new and flashy always better? To be sure, technology is useful for improving a student's computer literacy, but at what point do such attempts become a redundancy, and when do they hinder a student's ability to focus on tasks at hand? This presentation aims to address these questions by critically analyzing the trend of increasingly technological classrooms and technology’s effect on a student productivity and achievement.
