Technology has already changed the world, including the way we learn and teach. When used correctly, classroom technology can have a supremely positive impact on student outcomes at every grade level. Integrating technology into the classroom not only helps prepare students for the elaborate and technologically-connected world they will face going forward, but it can also help simplify complex ideas that might otherwise be a struggle to learn (and a struggle to teach) with textbooks and a chalkboard.
What kinds of technology can you introduce into your classroom? There are PCs and laptops of course, but teachers and students alike can also benefit from newer technology like tablets, e-readers, and Smart Boards. This video breaks down some of the interesting facts about technology in the modern classroom and explains some of the ways educators make use of technology.
