Should technology drive curriculum, or vice versa?

Education-Quote

As a science teacher, my answer to this questions isn’t black & white, yes or no. I feel like we need to use technology to teach our curriculum, but we should also teach about technology. When it comes to technology, I like to follow these three principles:

1. Build curriculum and use technology to enhance the material.

2. Apply curriculum through the use of technology when appropriate.

3. Teach students the proper uses of new technology that can be used and applied to everyday living.

I believe if you follow these, the use of technology in the classroom will be appropriate and effective.
