Technology has changed society throughout history. Over the last few decades, cellular devices, iPads, iPods, computers, and most importantly the internet have completely overhauled the way people interact in society and the way educators work in schools. Technology implementation in schools is pivotal to student success post high school due to the changing times and high demands for tech savvy personnel. It is imperative that teachers of the 21st century adjust to the technological revolution and not only prepare themselves but prepare their students for the technological real world. Technology has changed the way society looks, and the way the classroom looks and there will be no return to chalk boards and writing letters. The 21st century society demands a technologically advanced person and the 21st century classroom requires the same.
