Adding technology changes students, community

With technology moving at such a fast pace, educators are dealing with a different type of student now.

Adria Renke, vice president at Brophy College Prepatory in Phoenix joined Karie & Chuck on Monday for their "Eyes on Education" series.

"I think technology is additive in the classroom. I think it does a lot of great things. It keeps kids on task," said Renke, who wrote the book, Home Tutoring Made Easy.

The colleges are nowhere near where the high schools are with technology.

She also said it's important to find your child a community, whether it's in or outside of school.

"If you don't find it parents, they will. And they will choose anything to be part of a community," said Renke.

She said to find the place where your child will feel most comfortable. Some people need to be nurtured in smaller settings.

"Human connection is everything," said Renke.
