Abstract

Abstract: Allowing students to demonstrate understanding and extend knowledge through the use of technology is essential in society today. But, are we catering to the videogame generation? You bet. If we don’t tap into technology as an instructional tool we will only succeed in pushing the relevance of public education further and further from our students and fail to prepare them for the jobs of the future. Effectively preparing pre-service teachers to address the growing demands of a technology-rich society is essential in ensuring the success of K-12 students in life beyond high school.
