Technology is a tool that can enhance the learning experience for any subject area.   It extends the reach of a student's learning beyond the classroom, beyond state lines, beyond international boundaries, beyond planetary constraints to reach the furthest corners of the cosmos.   It can meet the needs of a diverse classroom by providing visuals, for the student that needs visual aids; by providing audio, for the auditory learner; by providing individual instruction for the student that needs more; and by providing the etc, for the etc.   

The impact of technology on learning varies with its use and the skill level of the user.    Technology with all of its possibilities remains nothing but a tool.   How we use technology for learning will determine its impact on how much we learn.   Putting this tool in the hands of many and teaching the masses how to use technology to push the inhabitants of our planet further will maximize what we get in return.

Research literature throughout the past decade has shown that technology can enhance literacy development, impact language acquisition, provide greater access to information, support learning, motivate students, and enhance their self-esteem (ACT, 2004; CEO Forum, 2001; Boster et al., 2004; Mann et al., 1999; Tracey & Young, 2006; WestEd, 2002). Indeed, researchers have affirmed that computer technology provides abundant opportunities for students to build or modify their personal knowledge through the rich experiences that technology affords.
