Are cables in the classroom a thing of the past? Maybe | eSchool News | eSchool News | Technology tools and shiny stuff | Scoop.it
Cables force the teacher to stay at that location while navigating the materials on the computer. Teachers require the ability to move abound the classroom while teaching; to engage with students, monitor learning, provide feedback and so much more. Tablet technology has allowed this freedom.
