In conclusion, I believe that media and technology are too prevalent and important to be ignored in the classroom setting. While there may be many barriers and hesitations as to why teachers do not wish to immediately adopt certain technological tools, there are many steps to overcoming these hurdles and being more aware of the changing landscape of K-12 schools. Teachers all now have the responsibility of facilitating the learning of their students, as it is the students themselves who can now actively control parts of the learning process. Media is an incredible avenue for building skills and acquiring knowledge in new ways. Increasingly, learning and media/technology are becoming inseparable, as each year reveals so many more amazing advances to this ever-growing field.
