Digital Takeover in the Classroom
The landscape of the classroom changes very quickly in the modern age, fuelled by innovation and technology. Significant leaps have been made from the abacus to the calculator, the notepad to the iPad – making teaching one of the most rewarding and exciting modern careers to embark upon. Electronic learning is becoming one of the frontrunners in governing the way our children learn, streamlining education and pushing students to new heights. But what exactly is the future of education?
The advent of cloud technology has been an innovation across all sectors. Storing information and files on a virtual hard drive, facilitated by the internet, rather than on a physical drive allows for on-the-go access. Leaving your essay at home or forgetting to e-mail yourself coursework has become a thing of the past at higher level learning, but the cloud is beginning to make its way into classrooms of all age groups.
