The Past, Present and Future of Technology in the Classroom
What is Tridigital Learning?
Past, Present and Future Learning: The Differences
Past learning was very textbook centered and greatly dependent on direct teacher instruction. Students were given little time to individually express creativity, and discussions were solely based on teachers asking questions and students answering them.
Learning in the Present
Today, learning is becoming more and more technology based, but not centered. Teachers assign projects for group collaboration, and incorporate audio, video and internet activities in the classroom. Some schools are iPad friendly but not all.
Learning in the Future
Future classrooms definitely have the potential to switch to 1:1 iPad learning. Many schools have already taken this route and it has proved successful. Technology in future classrooms might even be more centered around SmartBoards instead of the traditional white boards, which many schools have also switched to. Overall, I think technology in the future classroom will allow student manipulation and personal growth for all students.
