How much technology in the classroom?

Well I just read a blog in Sam Newton’s blog entitled, ‘ICT in my everyday life’ and was blown away by how much ICTs assist him in his life and business: iPhones, iPads, apps to calculate employee’s wages, Audionote to record lecture notes, etc. He wrote that it is scary for him when he looks at how he relies on ICTs on a daily basis. But I’m sure he is not unlike many others. Today’s world is driven by ICTs on many levels. How are we to manage as teachers in classroom where ICTs are changing at such a phenomenal rate? I liked a comment that Tyson Granzien’s wrote on his blog, ‘Technology is not there to ‘do school for you’ but it is there to enhance your time and school and make things easier.’ I think this comment is very true.
