Kindergarten technology I remember using the original Macintosh computer and floppy discs.
High school technology
My chemistry teacher used a video presenter for her lectures and demonstrations.
Graphing calculators were required for my math classes.
Many of my classes are using iclickers to assess student learning.
Most of my professors use powerpoint.
Many of my classes have online websites for assignments, notes, etc.
A vivid technology learning experience
Using video and Final Cut to make a video for my chemistry final project.
Using Skype to talk to a student in Japan for my Japanese class.
A technology I want to use in my classroom
I would want a class website so that students could have access to their lessons and assignments from anywhere. Also I could post links to references that I think are important.
My vision of the classroom of the future I hope that all students will use technology to not only to connect with their classmates, but to also connect with and learn from other people around the world.
A challenge for teaching
At best financially, most schools will probably never be able to have at least one computer per student.
