The Future of Interactive Education
Teachers have led students through the three Rs on stone tablets, papyrus scrolls, chalk boards, notepaper, and even classroom computer labs. As classroom technology evolves, though, how will the role of the “teacher” change as whiteboards, digital tablets, and smartphones find their way into traditionally Victorian-style classrooms? Will the teacher stay at the front of the class, leading students through lessons? Or will students take on more control and responsibility, using interactive gadgets to help them explore subjects and apply their new-found knowledge? How would this new model look in classrooms around the world? This report explores these questions and includes:
