A new generation of students born after 1985 – the Net Generation or Digital Natives – is now entering public schools. Historical overview shows the picture of growing computer use by children in homes and in schools for the past 10 years. ICT (Information and Communication Technologies) literacy skills and tools help students to acquire the skills needed to use the technologies within the classroom. National Educational Technology Standards (NETS) and NETS performance indicators provide guidelines for teachers of what students should know and be able to do with technologies by the end of every grade level.
This paper describes the ideas of various authors on how to integrate computer technologies into the elementary school curriculum and to overcome barriers of technology integration. The paper finishes with conclusions and recommendations for the integration of technology in schools.
