Tridigital Learning? Huh?

In 2013 and coming years, it is important to understand that education is continually changing and technology is becoming more prevalent in the classroom. Tridigital learning focuses on finding ways to implement past, present, and future ways of education to meet the needs of each student. It is imperative as educators, to grow, evolve and adapt our traditional ways of teaching along with technology advancements. Embracing the advancements and tools in technology will connect us as educators, better with our students and make us able to provide the most equitable environment for learning.

"More technology in the classroom will help education and trim costs." -Bill Gates

"If you want the very best lectures, if you want the cost efficiency, you have to break down and say, 'you know, let's take someone else's material," Gates told CNNMoney.

E-Books, Audio Books and constant access to the internet just lingering at student's fingertips will reduce the need and cost of books. Students don't even have to purchase a tablet or ipad. Most districts are working with federal funding and grants to provide each student with a tablet or ipad that will be returned at the end of each school year.
