Technology in Education

by @ 1:53 pm. Filed under Current Events

It had to happen…We write about technology often in this blog. Mainly because its influence in the world around us is fascinating. This morning the Lowell Sun ran an intriguing article highlighting one of the main potentials of technology…education. It is happening at Nashoba Valley Technical High School in Westford. Rather than back away from cell phones , YouTube, etc Nashoba Tech is embracing it. To start, school officials have equip classrooms with “SMART Boards, “similar “to the ones CNN uses to illustrate voting trends and results” (Lowell Sun). Items normally banned in classrooms, cell phones, PDAs, digital cameras and iPods are welcome educational tools at Nashoba. This generation of children is comfortable with electronics and impatient with paper and pencils. The Sun article spotlights Nashoba Tech, but Greater Lowell Tech and other area schools are also implementing the same educational innovation using technology. Too often, I write about the “fun stuff” related to technology…it is great to be able to write about technology being used for education while being fun.
