Using technology and computer science to facilitate learning as well as its role within education is important to understand as technology plays a dominant role in daily life. The availability, affordability, and efficiency of technological devices and tools have benefited both students and educators. Technology usage has increased as students with learning disabilities use different technological devices to support their needs, as well as teachers using assistive devices to directly identify students’ needs. Additionally, with the integration of technology and educational applications with lessons or texts, teachers provide students the opportunity to expand their learning through different forms of media, and engages students who learn through various cognitive learning styles the opportunity to connect with information in their own way. What technology in the classroom ultimately provides students is the opportunity to explore autonomy within themselves, while still receiving the academic support and structure needed to succeed within education and prepare them for real-world experiences.
