The greatest challenge before us is to make the classroom more tech-friendly. To do this is to set up specific management strategies. A tech friendly classroom goes beyond just a computer, wi-fi, and projector. A lot of pre-work needs to go into the use of technology in a classroom, and this includes due inclusion of how the teacher intends to use technology in the class in his lesson plan. Innovative use of technology includes using tablet computers to solve mathematical problems, using social networking sites for exchange or collaborative lessons, where for example you need to learn about the Geography of France while sitting in India. What better way than to befriend a French student and then excahnging information about each other's contry?
