She goes on to describe the Educational Achievement Authority (EAA) of Michigan and its set of schools which have "set the standard for using a blended curriculum in order to 'raise the bar' at lower-performing schools within [Detroit] city limits.
"However, there's a problem. Students can become easily discouraged when they are unfamiliar with using technology, and instructors can become overwhelmed when trying to teach content along with basic computer skills. As educators, we must do what we can in order to prepare our students for success not only within the classroom, but also in the outside world--especially as we make advancements towards being a more technologically-dependent society."
Parker proposes "building genuine relationships with students is one of the most efficient ways to establish classroom management, but it is also necessary to engage students in learning the skills they need in order to use the technological components of the classroom."
