[Infographic] How classroom tech evolves

[Infographic] How classroom tech evolves | educacion-y-ntic | Scoop.it
The How Classroom Tech Evolves Infographic shows what the modern day classroom looks like and presents what the classroom of tomorrow will bring. It explores the tech gadgets that are already being implemented in different schools around the country, and how they’re beneficial to both students and teachers.
Times have changed

Technology has rapidly changed the way we do things in a relatively short period of time. We have gone from painstakingly slow dial-up and waiting minutes for a single image to load, to always on broadband access and streaming high definition video to our cell phones.

There are children growing up who don’t know a world without Google, who don’t know the feeling of simply having to make do with not knowing something, “just Google it,” they all say. These are the same kids who don’t know what the save button in Microsoft Word is for, or why people say “rewind” when they want to go back to something in a video. They grew up with iPads and touchscreens, wifi and blazing internet speeds. Without a doubt, technology has impacted nearly every aspect of our lives including education.
Technology’s Role in the Classroom

Technology’s role in the classroom has drastically increased in recent years – with technology funding jumping from around $800 million in the early 2000s to nearly $12 billion in 2015. With wireless connectivity, tablets, and video conferencing, classrooms are beginning to look less like rooms in a school building and more like the bridge of the Enterprise every day. And as we progress, teachers are realizing that technology is not just a source of distraction for their students, but is actually a tool that can help students with a variety of learning styles to absorb information more effectively.
Adapting to Rapid Change

Being a good educator means constantly adapting to changing conditions, and using the most effective educational tools. This means embracing technology in the classroom. A majority of students today believe that having tech in the classroom has helped them to learn, and educators agree. Giving teachers the tools, training and trust they need to provide their students with meaningful online experiences can help them make the leap from being users of digital technology, to capable citizens of an always-on digital world.

It’s important to realize that this generation will change how educators formulate lessons and interact with students. They were brought up in the global community thanks to the Internet. With more and more technology being used in the classroom, teachers are slowly easing into the idea of using web-based programs to engage their students.

Did You Know? Distance Education Has Been Around Since 1728

Did You Know? Distance Education Has Been Around Since 1728 | educacion-y-ntic | Scoop.it

How far we’ve come in such a relatively short time. In just a couple centuries, we’ve gone from… wait what? A couple centuries?

Yep, distance education has been alive and well since the year 1728. That was when Caleb Phillips offered a course on shorthand by mail. Times sure have changed though. We talk about that just about every day on Edudemic but this infographic from Online Schools shares a bit more historical data than we typically do. Enjoy!
