Derrick Schellenberg's curator insight, March 31, 10:11 AM

An intriguing little infographic documenting the history of technology and its application to the education system.  Interesting how the use of radio or white boards (as opposed to chalk boards) are considered technological "improvements" or were seemingly revolutionary at the time.  Someone somewhere was a pioneer for bringing the radio or a cassette tape into the classroom.  I thought the wireless numbers for American schools was high and the use of iPads low.  Perhaps iPads are like Smart Boards, in that they seem really cool, but can be challenging to use effectively on a daily basis.  My interest is in cloud computing, web-based application, BYOD, and how to improve LMS.  What I'm always wondering is, what's coming next and how will it alter the use of technology in the classroom?
