Weaknesses of Technology

  • High cost of technology tools, such as computers vs. papers and pencils
  • Failure or disruption, such as Internet connection issues in rural disadvantaged areas
  • Distractions of the Internet for students
  • Cheating becomes easier and more difficult to identify
  • Students become over-reliant on technology and fail to learn basic skills, such as grammar rules

Unique Threats Through Technology

  • Digital Distractions: Students should be taught how to manage their devices and online time wisely.
  • Misinformation: The skill of verifying sources must be taught regularly to students.
  • Cyberbullying: Students must learn to be responsible online citizens and how to respond to this form of bullying.
  • Unauthorized access: Schools must strictly enforce cybersecurity measures to protect students and their identifying information.
