Technology in the classroom

Technology in Classrooms
We are in a math class for teachers that deals with technology being incorporated in the classroom at an elementary level. We feel that this technology, such as computers and the internet, is good in some aspects because it allows more information to be gathered more readily, but in other aspects the computer takes away the cognitive problem solving skills and exposes students to sites with little or no useful information. This makes it more difficult for students to learn because dependence on the computer becomes prominent. We are interested to hear your thoughts on technology, both pros and cons. Thanks!
