Grabbing Attention

It is important to have technology in the classroom today because it grabs students' attention. I have observed in a high school math classroom where the students were not interested in participating in class or listening to anything the teacher had to say. The next day, she took them into the computer lab to play math games on the computer and have competitions. It felt like I was observing a completely different classroom!

I agree with your conclusion completly. I think kids really enjoy working on different subjects on the computer or with other technology. They can do it independantly or with a group. There is a wide variety of games that they can enjoy also. Nice idea!
