New Technology In Education
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Not every person would recognize the structure and approach to learning in the standard classroom these days. More and more schools are turning to technology to help teachers teach and students learn. There are laptops and iPads in the hands of students and whiteboards that teachers and students can operate like a computer with a simple touch of the finger. New technology in education continues to grow, so it is fitting that schools seek to implement it into their programs. Some of the latest technology trends that you might find in the classroom include a flipped classroom, using text messages to engage students, utilizing blogs for learning, and even sites on which to store and share study materials.

A flipped classroom is one type of new technology in education that is becoming increasingly popular. Imagine if you could listen to your teacher’s lecture at home and then go to school to do your homework. That is exactly what a flipped classroom does. Teachers post their own videos where students can access them from home. Students are responsible to listen to and study the lecture, then come to the classroom ready to do their coursework. It allows for more one on one interaction with the teacher by simply taking the lecture time out of the classroom.

Some teachers are also embracing text messaging in certain instances. In the appropriate setting, text messages allow teachers to reach all students—even those who might otherwise be a little too shy to speak up in class. With text messages, every student can voice his or her opinion on a given subject. It also helps to keep students engaged in the lesson as opposed to using their text messages as a distraction.

Blogs are also a new technology in education. Teachers are helping students to learn how to use blogs to document school projects, such as science experiments. This is usually done with special blog software that lets kids do this in a safe and secure environment rather than exposing kids to a regular internet accessed blog right away.

Schools can even provide students and teachers with a secure site on which they can share notes, videos, and more. Study materials and teaching resources can be made easily available for students and teachers in a given network to share and access, making learning and teaching even more accessible.

New technology in education brings learning and teaching to an entirely new level. The items listed above are just a few of the latest technological education trends. Only the future can tell where it will lead students and teachers next.
