Long gone are the days when classroom tech equaled a new chalkboard and an overhead projector. The same devices that we’ve come to rely on at work and at home are now remaking the ways that students learn and teachers instruct.
Computers, of course, have been a fixture in classrooms for decades, but those are increasingly being supplemented by smart tablets. Those are used for research and presentation as well as educationally focused apps. Another example: Smart boards are a unique option for students to demonstrate learning, with a hands-on tech method that relies on just a fingertip for manipulation.
There are a host of advantages to the increased presence of technology in the classroom, as well as different tips to ensure that the transition to tech is as smooth as possible. Use this graphic to learn more on all these important educational topics.
