Today's children are raised in a generation of “digital age”. The new digital technologies provide faster links to the world and from agriculture to medicine, all areas are implementing technologies. Therefore, this age's children's future, employment is dependent on how much they can implement technology skills and transfer those skills into their content is becoming more and more important In order to do this they depend on their teachers. That's why we have to look into the barriers in using technology. Some barrires in technology use and the ways that we try to overcome will be discussed.
