Technology, learning, confidence, and communication are essential and linked to provide students with successful classroom time. The material learned and the way is taught should come first. “Technology is valued within our culture. It is something that costs money and that bestows the power to add value. By giving students technology tools, we are implicitly giving weight to their school activities. Students are very sensitive to this message that they, and their work, are important.” Students need to have the confidence to ask questions in the classroom; there are many factors that affect their assertiveness and self-esteem; however, as educators it is our responsibility to provide students with a comfortable learning environment.

By creating a new survey but not only for students but for teachers as well to check what tools are they using and whether or not they are working.
