Are we doing more harm than good in using so much technology in the classroom?

Some of the effects I am currently seeing

  1. Teachers using ipads etc to replace the Teaching component of their lessons
  2. Students lacking basic skills in science due to them not being given direct instruction but are self educating through the use of laptops.
  3. Students are showing lack of skills in note taking.
  4. Reduced Fine motor skill function due to no longer hands in making/building projects .
  5. Students are expecting to be dazzled every lesson as Teachers are more tech savvy and produce ever increasing amounts of technological lessons.
