Abstract

Technology is intertwined in all aspects of our lives. Technology has evolved in ways that were once considered unimaginable. Yet, access to these advancements in technology are not adequate, especially throughout our education system. The purpose of this paper is to bring to light the significance technology can have on our education system today. This paper will reflect research which supports the integration of technology beginning in early childhood classrooms. This paper will also reflect on the injustices that exist in how educational technology is unequally distributed between socio-economic status. More is available to wealthy, white students. While people from low-income backgrounds and people of color continue to struggle to access the same tools for academic, and later professional success. Our education system needs to advocate so that all learners regardless of their socio-economic status have access to adequate and equal technology.
