In today’s education system, there is a substantial gap between the technological abilities of the students we educate and the educators themselves. This gap exists because of the rapid advancement of the technological age, the inability of our educators to keep up with the vast changes and the sheer lack of knowledge and training our educators have. In order for our educators to keep up with the changing times and work to close the gap between students and educators, teachers must annually attend professional development workshops that provide themselves with innovative new technological advances and properly be trained on how to utilize these in the classroom. Development of these skills is crucial in the classroom because these technologies allow for educators to properly differentiate their lessons to their individual students needs. After these teachers have been educated on the ample amount of advancements and tools offered, having these tools available and accessible is critical. By developing a webpage that not only deepens the understanding of the uses of these technologies but allows for easy accessibility when lesson planning, teachers will be able to stay proactive with the technology tools that are offered.
