This synthesis paper argues for the need of Technology within education field.  The paper focuses on the importance of 21st Century skills that students are lacking in order to be successful in a digital society and, furthermore, shows how America is struggling to maintain a strong human capital that can withstand global competition which highlights the ever growing need for technology savvy American employees. I also focus on how students hands on approach creates experiences that will follow them into the working world (post education) and how this has changed the way teachers need to facilitate using project based learning rather than conventional teaching.
