Technology has come a long way in just under a hundred years. Check out how technology has changed and is continuing to change classrooms.
The World Wide Web was open to the public in the early ’90s. This made it possible for students to conduct research and gather information without going to the library.
In the late 1990s, the interactive whiteboard was introduced into classroom. It replaced the chalkboard and markerboards, and gave teachers a touch-sensitive board through a projector and computer. Interactive boards are still in classroom today!
Tablets and mobile devices were introduced in the 21st century to make information more accessible for students
In this flashback, you can see how technology in schools is ever changing. What will the classrooms look like 100 years from now? Will there even be classrooms?
