Video: The Future of Technology in the Classroom!

 
 

 

 

Kate shares insights into the future of technology in the classroom. Will the classroom include self learning environments where students will have blue tooth stereo implants in their ears?  Some educators believe technology in the classroom means developing 21st century skills like managing, analyzing and synthesizing multiple strains of information at the same time.  So what do you think? Are you ready to introduce tech into your classroom? Watch the video to learn more.
