What Alumni Say

Amanda Gilman '10

"The integration of technology in the education program at Dakota State has prepared me for my job in education in countless ways. Technology is constantly changing, and as a classroom teacher, I am expected to know how to use it. I would not be able to develop these new skills as quickly without a background in technology. Our classrooms are constantly using iPads, mini laptops, and a Smart Board. Students are continuously exposed to technology outside of the classroom, and it makes learning more exciting to them when we are using up-to-date technology inside of the classroom, too."
