A thorough review of the literature was used to examine whether our middle and high school educational system is adapting to the technological changes in a constructive or destructive way. The research not only identified critical issues indicated within the literature review but also issues that remain controversial and those that have not received much consideration. The cultural diversity of not only our schools but the whole society as well offers a great magnitude of challenges. This review emulates the diverse responses by those men and women whom have experienced and worked with the educational systems. The benefits and burdens technology brings to the table for all school districts reflects the responsibility students and educators have when deciding which technology to implement into the learning experiences. Technology is and should be integrated into educational programs so that it benefits the majority of all students.
