The use and growth of technology in our lives is being disseminated at a rapid rate that is sure to continue blossoming as the years go by. Technology has touched just about every aspect of human life and has even affected the way our youth learn in the classroom today. Textbooks are no longer the only way our students learn.

It is safe to say that the modern learning area is completely different than that of 20, or even 10 years ago and our children are literally becoming technology nerds, whether they like it or [...]
