NAGC 58th Annual Convention
New Orleans, Louisiana
Saturday, November 3, 2011
7:30 a.m. - 8:30 a.m.
Room: Versailles Ballroom

We are now in the second decade of the 21st century. Our world is filled with amazing technological advances, yet our schools and classrooms have largely gone unchanged since the late 19th Century. The promise of the future is attainable with available free tools like cloud computing, mobile devices, game based learning, and augmented reality. Join us as we explore how gifted students are and could be using technology to lead us into the future. This session explores past predictions for the future and demonstrates how the technology of today can create the classroom of tomorrow.
