Abstract:     
In our attempt to dazzle students with technological innovation, we must be careful not to overuse or misuse the technology. Regardless of the technology, students who merely receive knowledge in a passive way will not learn effectively. Thus, we must limit our teaching through technology to instances in which we can still encourage active learning. This article discusses some of the benefits and drawbacks of technology in the classroom using an 'older' tool -- PowerPoint -- as a model.
