Alabama students live in one of the most exciting and ever-changing times in human history, the "Information Age." Indeed, the Information Age may be as influential in directing the course of human advancement as was the Industrial Revolution. As educators, we must ensure that our students are active participants during this time of phenomenal human progress. Although technology is not a panacea for solving all instructional problems, it equips students with tools that have not existed in the past. Technology offers students opportunities and possibilities that would not be available without it. Alabama students should be at the forefront of exploring these technological opportunities and possibilities.
