Abstract

The world is changing and so is the educational sector. The major driver of this change is technological advancements, so it is imperative that educators investigate ways to prepare students to fit into the 21st century technology-driven workforce by adopting digital alternatives to the pens and books that still dominate present-day classroom resources, especially in developing countries. This chapter discusses the importance of computer-driven technologies in teaching. In doing so, this chapter highlights the present situation of technology integration in schools in Nigeria and the challenges teachers face in their use of classroom technologies. It is the author's opinion that teachers have a responsibility to pursue personal professional development in addition to whatever kind of training provided on the job. This chapter intends to help educators learn how to leverage free digital tools to support and meet the needs of diverse learners in the classroom.
