Technology can launch new ideas and engage students in interactive learning environments. This podcast spends time exploring different types of technology that can be used in the classroom to excite students and take learning to a new level. By using 21st Century technology in the classroom, teachers are given the opportunity to create lessons that encourage students to work together and use more reasoning skills. Technology also saves prep time and allows more time for focusing on the students.
