Tech for Teachers

Publish date:

As technology evolves outside the classroom, the devices teachers use inside the classroom stand to change over time, as well — and perhaps dramatically. The popularization of 3-D printing, for example, could revolutionize tactile learning methods from pre-K all the way through college. However, both how and why to use technology in education transcend the tools themselves. 

The "Tech for Teachers" guide explores the numerous technological resources available to educators today, from interactive whiteboards and clickers to tablets and apps.

 There is something missing in all the press analysis of these clashes of the giants. Beyond the Apple vs. Samsung headlines, there is the continuing story of major Japanese companies Sony and Sharp struggling to regain some of their mojo in the face of the both the Apple juggernaut and the rise of Korean giants LG and Samsung.
