Educational Technology Literacy Week 1 - Discussion 1 Part 1. Personal experience and peer rewiew.

Use of this technology kept the children engaged for longer periods of time, which in turn sharpened their skills. Not just in using the computer, but they became stronger at reading, writing, and math. Even though using the computer, they still had to type in the words, which in turn making them better at spelling and reading. Given they were children from different backgrounds, using technology held their attention longer and they wanted to work together to solve problems.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
