-Classrooms are innovating and bring technology in to aid the students. The “flipped” classroom is the idea of having ​traditional teaching delivered from online sources and teachers are there to help with further understanding. The teacher becomes more of a guide to online activities the students are using to learn. Students have the ability to work at their own pace and also have the ability to communicate with classmates and teachers online. Being able to communicate with other students online when at home can help students work together and give each other encouragement. Students have access to the lectures at home to help study and do homework. ​ "It has surprised the teachers that the kids can excel on their own, with minimal teaching intervention"​ [(:​citation1)]. ​+Classrooms are innovating and bringing ​technology in to aid the students.

 Tech companies who have tablets on their inventory are saying, “tablets are a tool to make teachers better”[(:​citation6)]. Schools have responded that technology helps teachers based on the tools a tablet can offer. Teachers are able to receive instant feedback, have independent research time and access support and learning resources.[(:​citation6)] Gareth Beavis ​ spoke to teacher to get their opinion o using tablets to help learn. Most of the teachers agreed on the fact that tablets have cameras and big screens to expand the interaction with the students while doing homework, can document work and progress to refer back to.  Technology can help share documents between parents and other teachers.[(:​citation6)] ​ Tech companies who have tablets on their inventory are saying, “tablets are a tool to make teachers better”[(:​citation6)].

 “Almost 70% of primary and secondary schools in the UK now use tablet computers, according to research”[(:​citation3)]. This study found that there is no clear evidence of improvement with the use of tablet devices. Tablets and computer are becoming more available in schools. Foe each student there will be a tablet in no time. “Dr. Clark, formerly of the University of Cambridge’s education department, says it is not possible to make a definitive connection between tablet computers and improved results” [(:​citation3)]. Tablets may distract and disengage students or they may encourage students to work harder. ​ “Almost 70% of primary and secondary schools in the UK now use tablet computers, according to research”[(:​citation3)].

-Students work and learn at their own pace and technology can help with that. As stated earlier, students can use technology to review tutorials and lectures of material gone through in class at home. Technology allows students to study using multiple resources. These resources can be students and/or faculty from different sates or countries. Things can be explained different by different people in ways the learner understands that may not have understood in the classroom. “Technology allows a student to take charge of the pace of his or her own learning. For example, students who quickly master a concept can move ahead in the lesson, while those who need more time can revisit all or part of a lesson, as many times as necessary, or learn it in a different way. The teacher becomes available to respond to the needs of individual students”[(:​citation4)]. ​ Technology can also free up teachers time because they do not need to prepare extensive lecture ​because technology ​will guide the students in their learning. ​+Students work and learn at their own pace and technology can help with that.
