Community Forums - K-12 Educators - Pros and Cons of Digital Resources in the classroom

A forum for K-12 educators to share classroom resources and teaching ideas. If you would like to contribute to the forums or to change your subscription, please log in to the left.

I see one the greatest pros of using digital resources is having the ability to access the latest discoveries in science.  Printed reference matarials are already dated when they are published for the first time.  I think it's also interesting for students to see the evolution of what we know from earlier works compared to the most recent discoveries!  However, this leads me into the con.  There are few people that can take recent science discoveries and put them in a language that is understandable for high school students.  You often hear in science education circles that we need to improve the science literacy of people, but you can't do that if the information is too technical.  I have often found some great sites but the language prevents it from being any use for my students.

Re: Pros and Cons of Digital Resources in the classroom

I have noticed, too, that digital resources in the classroom can benefit, as well as hinder, students. The benefits outweigh the disadvantages--however, some students have come to ONLY rely on digital resources instead of also using other printed resources and supplemental material.
