  5. 5. Kindergarten technology <ul><li>When I was in Kindergarten technology was very limited. All we had to use were televisions and VCRs. </li></ul>
  6. 6. High school technology <ul><li>In high school, I had cell phones and mp3 players, but they were nowhere near as advance as they are now. Computers were becoming essential to do papers, but most classes didn’t require papers to be typed. </li></ul>
  7. 7. College technology <ul><li>In college, I can’t do anything without my laptop now. Laptops used to be expensive, but now everyone has one. In my elementary education class we had a smart board that eliminated the use of poster boards in class. </li></ul>

  10. 10. My vision of the classroom of the future <ul><li>In the future, I would like to see a classroom where everyone has a computer in front of them. This would save money on printing paper out and would help the teacher in creating videos that can be transferred to each computer. </li></ul>
  11. 11. A challenge for teaching <ul><li>A major challenge with using so much technology in a classroom is that not every student will come from a family that can afford this type of technology. Also, not every state funded school will have the funding to buy these technologies. Finally, technology isn’t for everyone. Some students might have more trouble trying to learn more and more technology. </li></ul>
  12. 12. Words of wisdom <ul><li>Do not confine your children to your own learning, for they were born in another time. </li></ul><ul><li>Chinese Proverb </li></ul>
