Technology in Education: A future Classroom

Education is changing. Teachers no longer primarily lecture from the front of the class. Students don’t fervently copy the instructor’s words down, read text, and memorize material for a test.

And the classroom itself has changed.

If these reforms have your head spinning, hold on to your sensibilities because lots more are coming in terms of technology in the Education. You thought Smartscreens at the front of the class linked to a computer, students storing schoolwork in the cloud rather than a personal file folder, homework submitted electronically, parents signing up to volunteer on something called “Sign up Genius” and other technology in the classroom was cutting edge?

By the time your newborn baby enters kindergarten, here’s what they’ll find at their schoolhouse. and this will be the Advantages and Disadvantages to the students and the teachers:

Advantages:

Students will each have a digital device. It may be a tablet PC, laptop, Chromebook or Surface — that won’t matter. What’s important is that it is portable, sturdy, fits in a backpack, and is digitally secure. All student work will be done on these. Losing one would be worse than losing a backpack much worse.

Disadvantages

Grades will be posted online immediately. They will always be up to date, enabling students to transparently know where they stand in the class. There will be no more “I had no idea I was doing so poorly in this class.”
