As years go by, students are learning the same things but the way they are learning the information is changing with the times. Change is always happening in a classroom depending on what materials are available for the teachers to use. With the growing digital world that we are living in teachers are learning to incorporate technology into their lessons. In Napa valley this is starting to become a huge part of the classroom. I like how this article talk about how students can take charge of the pace of their own learning. I don’t know if this is helpful in the younger grades because they might not actually take charge but in older grades you can move on once you’ve mastered a lesson or keep working on it until you get it. Also it points out that technology can help students “research and solve real world problems”. This is awesome because students as they get older they will need to do research papers and projects. They will be able to do it with no issue because they have learned from such a young age what to do for it.
